We Are The Line

Saturday, March 7th 2015 - 6:00 pm at Free Speech Wall
605 East Main Street

We Are The Line is a candlelight vigil, held annually on the Saturday prior to International Women’s Day, to raise awareness about women’s rights abuses worldwide. The event will begin at six and is taking place at the Free Speech Wall downtown. This year our theme is bringing back/reinventing feminism. We will have several local speakers, including some from area high schools and other members of our community, along with some musical performances featuring the “No Fella A-capella” group from Albemarle High School. There will also be several petitions available to sign with the goal of ending various women’s rights abuses.

        The event’s name originates from the line of candles we will light. The candles symbolize “drawing the line” i.e. we are trying to end violence and abuses towards women. On that same note, our slogan is “standing together to end abuse towards women”.
       Come join us for an evening of speeches, music, and social action!
