Why We Marched on January 21
 womens march2017
 
The League does not support or oppose candidates or political parties. The League does work to influence public policy through citizen education and advocacy. The State League signed on as a sponsor of the Women's March in Chicago in conjunction with the National League's support of these marches.
 
The issues the League marched for include:

Silence is often mistaken for acquiescence. So many issues are uncertain at this time. We wanted to make our voices heard on these.
