Resist NOW: Events Around the City – June 16, 2017
What’s Happening NOW:
Women’s March to Ban the BombSaturday, June 17th from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
In one of its final acts of 2016, the United Nations General Assembly adopted with overwhelming support a landmark resolution to begin negotiations on a treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons. This historic decision heralds an end to two decades of paralysis in multilateral nuclear disarmament efforts.
The Women’s March to Ban the Bomb is a women-led initiative building on the momentum of movements at the forefront of the resistance, including the Women’s March on Washington. It will bring together people of all genders, sexual orientations, ages, races, abilities, nationalities, cultures, faiths, political affiliations and backgrounds to march and rally in New York City!

This is a great opportunity to meet and mingle with other NOW-NYC supporters and members of the resistance. It is sure to be a night to remember!Fun Fact: McSorley’s used to be a men’s only clubhouse. In the sixties, the original members of NOW protested outside McSorley’s for this sexist policy and a lawsuit ensued. In 1969, after 115 years of operation, McSorleys opened its doors to women for the first time (FINALLY!).
