On Saturday, March 9, 2013, the 23rd Annual San Antonio International Woman’s Day March & Rally (SAIWD) will begin at 10am at Dignowity Park in San Antonio’s Eastside.  For decades, women and allies of San Antonio, surrounding areas and from as far as Austin, Corpus Christi, and Houston, have marched throughout our city chanting, singing, drumming and holding colorful signs and banners.  We march for what we believe in and for what we hold most dear.  Our collective commitment to our communities, to our families and to this world plays a crucial role in our city.  We value the importance of taking to the streets and gathering in the parks built by our ancestors. 
The SA International Woman’s Day March & Rally invites the whole community; our mothers and grandmothers; our sisters in the struggle, our fathers, grandfathers, uncles, tias, our neighborhoods’ business owners, our government leaders, educators, professionals, service providers and workers, to join us in a historic event marking various Points of Oppression, citing numerous injustices endured by women and many in our community.

A Rally will follow the march at the Plaza del Zacate (milam park) where we’ll hear from community leaders, performers and artists, enjoy children’s activities, plus learn about various women led organizations that do essential work.  San Antonio’s annual march honors the women that work locally and affect our communities globally. 

Our city has become a model for an overbearing tourism industry, for ill-fitting growth and development, and for stunting the improvement of our public school system.  The women of San Antonio are leading our city in a transformation that will make us the model for innovation and progressive change for workers, for our environment and for our children and elders.  Join us on Saturday, March 9, 2013 and follow us on Facebook & Twitter and in person at weekly meetings throughout the year!

Cada año, el Día Internacional de la Mujer se celebra en grande en varias partes del mundo, el 8 de marzo. En San Antonio, Tejas, por 22 años se ha celebrado este día con una marcha por las calles de nuestras vecindades en el este, el oeste, en el sur y en el centro de la ciudad. Por décadas, Fuerza Unida ha participado en los planes mara la marcha, anualmente programada para el día sábado más cerca a la fecha, 8 de marzo.

Initiative, Martinez Street Women’s Center, Domesticas en Acción, UNITE HERE!, Southwest Workers Union, Domésticas Unidas y más. En años recientes, se ha extendido el alcance del grupo y de nuestro mensaje con la creciente participación de individuos de la comunidad que llevan la lucha por la justicia a diario en sus vidas cotidianas y por vocación. Los temas que tratamos abarcan los siguientes y más...el seguro médico, alojamiento, la educación, el medio ambiente, sueldos justos y el impacto de las injusticias y la violencia sobre mujeres, gente no blanca, jóvenes, gente mayor, inmigrantes, gente indígena, gente queer, y gente pobre y trabajadora. ¡Únase a un esfuerzo comunitario que va evolucionando y desplegándose más con cada año que pasa!
