Edward A. Garmatz United States Courthouse
101 W Lombard St, Ste 4625, Baltimore, Maryland 21201
Say Her Name Protest & Rally
Thursday’s action coincides with the Vanessa Guillen Thursday D.C. March organized by her parents to demand justice in her case. We will honor all of the women #SayHerName who have been victims of police, racist, military and patriarchal violence.
Baltimore women veterans and their supporters will highlight the racism and sexism of how women vets including trangendered women are treated, particularly Black, Brown and Indigenous women. This includes lack of proper medical care, housing, and physiological support. Hear from Annette Johnson, a veteran and supporter of other Black women veterans.
Rape and sexual violence are an intergral part of the police and military culture. It is a form of terror that is used by U.S. imperialism both abroad and even inside it’s own military as a method of terror, genocide and control.
Everyone is invited; women and oppressed genders will be speaking. Please wear a mask and social distance; if you don’t have a mask we will have some on hand along with snacks.
Gather at the Garmatz Building, Federal CourtHouse, 101 W. Lombard Street, downtown Baltimore.
