We appreciate that so many of you are passionately invested in making sure that this event is inclusive, representative, and that it remains centered on and led by individuals from groups most directly affected by systems of oppression. As we stated last year, we acknowledge that racism is a cornerstone of the strategy to implement minority rule to the detriment of us all. We commit to embracing and understanding our different backgrounds, and to supporting and lifting up the leadership of women and trans people of color. We recognize that women do not and will not just lead on «women's issues;” as organized women, we are leading and will lead in every area of the movement and of society. We reaffirm these guiding principles and we have set about planning the Women’s Rally on Raleigh so that the event remains consistent with them and so that our leaders reflect them. We acknowledge the real harm caused by tokenism and divisiveness in the history of the women’s movement. While we can’t change the past, we do work to ensure that past wrongs are not repeated here and that we move forward together to lead a loving, beautiful and creative resistance. As our 2018 Program Committee confirms the speakers and performers for this year’s event in the coming days, we look forward to sharing their profiles with you..In the meantime, we invite you to join us at planning meetings and we encourage you to visit our webpage to learn more about the origins and mission of the Women’s Rally on Raleigh
