Standing in Solidarity (S.I.S.) a group of Camden-based women are organizing a unity rally for women on Thursday March 22 at Roosevelt Plaza Park. S.I.S promotes intergenerational bonding by demonstrating unity in issues vital to the empowerment of women. In the spirit of Women’s History month, S.I.S. will host this historic gathering of multi-generational area women from diverse backgrounds.
South Jersey Women for Progressive Change has been invited to join this rally to promote our universal concerns and commonalities for the wellbeing of all women in our region.
“Our focus is bridging the intergenerational gap,” says Erin L. Johnson, rally organizer. Erin, an entrepreneur and founder of Feminist Business Society is part of the trio spearheading this effort. Erin Johnson and her partners Nyemah Gillespie, owner of Dare 2 Dance, and Betty Knight, founder of Miracles in Motion are all millennial Camden natives and products of Camden City Public Schools.
There will be a number of inspirational speakers focusing on issues related to unity in the home, community, and work. There will also be vendors with information and resources for women and families. South Jersey Women for Progressive Change will be sponsoring a voter registration table.
The event will enable the women of Camden City to write the narrative about the future of their home town and highlight the incredible positive work that is happening in Camden communities every day.
The group is also planning a follow up event that will promote solution-based discussion for women’s issues.
The Women’s Unity Day Rally is free and open to the public. For more information about this event or S.I.S. check out their Facebook page or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
