Minneapolis, MN — Plans are underway to mark International Women’s Day with an outdoor rally, March 8, 5 p.m., at Mayday Plaza, 301 Cedar Avenue, Minneapolis. Organized by the Freedom Road Socialist Organization, the event has been endorsed by Twin Cities Coalition for Justice 4 Jamar, Anti-War Committee, Women Against Military Madness, Minnesota Peace Action Coalition, Welfare Rights Committee, Native Lives Matter, Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Committee, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) at the University of Minnesota, and Women's March MN.

Protest organizer Tracy Molm states, “International Women's Day has been gaining visibility as the #metoo movement and women stand up and fight back against rich and powerful men. This year we are again looking forward to celebrating this important day with a rally that will celebrate the important contributions of women in the Twin Cities to building struggle and fighting for working women's rights.”
