Share |

 

Congratulations! You’ve signed up to join the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) at the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday, January 21st. Please meet at 1667 “K” Street, NW Suite 800 in Washington, D.C. at 8:15 a.m. for light refreshments. The group will leave promptly at 9 a.m. to the Women’s March on Washington starting location at Independence Avenue and 3rd Street (near the U.S. Capitol Building).

Expect delays and increased congestion from visitors for the inauguration and march. If you do not arrive at AWIS Headquarters prior to 9 a.m., join the march at Independence Avenue and 3rd Street (near the U.S. Capitol Building). Expect high auto and pedestrian traffic. If you have not traveled to Washington, D.C. before, note that city blocks are much larger and take longer to traverse than many other city blocks. Double your normal commute time expectations.

Guests are welcome to march with AWIS. All guests must register and complete a liability waiver. Please share this form. 

Getting to 1667 “K” Street, NW: With 200,000+ Facebook RSVPs and 500,000 shares, you may want to consider public transit. AWIS National Headquarters is located near the Farragut North (red line) and Farragut West (blue, orange and silver lines) Metro stations as well as several bus lines on Farragut Square (N2, N4, 37, 32, and others).


Getting to the Women’s March on Washington: Our group will leave AWIS National Headquarters together at 9:00 a.m. and walk to Independence Avenue and 3rd Street (near the U.S. Capitol Building) for the Women’s March on Washington. Here is our anticipated route:

Interested in being spotlighted in AWIS social media? Please share photos of your AWIS chapter members and allies with our social media intern, Aspen Russell, at Arussell@AWIS.org and tag our official Facebook and Twitter.

Signs and attire: AWIS is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization. AWIS is organized and operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, specifically: to promote equal opportunity for women to enter the scientific professions and achieve their career goals; to raise the status of women in science, and women generally; to initiate, encourage and engage in research related to women in the scientific fields and other works of educational and scientific nature; and to exchange information with other groups supportive of our goals, and coordinate activities directed to their fulfillment.

In planning your attire and use of signs for the Women’s March on Washington, the use of the AWIS name and acronym may only be used in communicating our mission and vision. Do not use the AWIS name or acronym with political messages or other communications that are not directly tied to the official views of AWIS.

At the coffee event prior to the march, AWIS National staff will be providing “I Support Women in STEM” buttons. Related messaging is encouraged!
