The Seattle Women’s March begins on Saturday January 21 with a 10 am rally at Judkins Park that is followed by a 3.6-mile march to the Seattle Center. National media have focused on the rally in Washington, DC, but there are more than 600 “sister events” around country and the world.
If you’d like to march with the 32nd Dems, we’ll be near the Earth banner in Judkins Park by 10 am. Look for the 32LD Banner. Plan to arrive early; organizers expect 50,000 people based upon online RSVPs.
Marchers will depart Judkins Park in groups or waves. (Think about how organizers pace the start of a marathon race.)
- From 20th Avenue South and South Weller Street, the route heads north on 20th Avenue South
- West on South Jackson Street
- North on 4th Avenue
- West on Denny Way, and
- North on 2nd Avenue North into Seattle Center
The Seattle Department of Transportation released this map of the route:
If you’re thinking about using public transportation, King County Metro noted on Thursday that there will be extra buses on an as needed (“on demand”) basis. These extra buses will not show up in Trip Planner or OneBus Away.
