  • NIU MLK Commons DeKalb (map)

On International Women's Day, March 8th, DeKalb will stand with cities across the United States in a demonstration of solidarity for equity, justice, and the rights of all gender-oppressed people as part of the Women's March national #DayWithoutAWoman campaign.

We ask you to perform one or more of the following actions:

1. Wear RED to show solidarity

2. Take the DAY OFF from school/work (if you are able)

3. ONLY shop at locally, women-, and minority-owned businesses

4. Listen to SPEAKERS at the NIU MLK Commons (5:00 pm), MARCH to the corner for 1st and Lincoln, aka Peace Corner (6:00 - 6:30), RALLY and OPEN MIC on issues of gender and social justice at Peace Corner (6:30 - 7:30)

For help identifying locally, women-, and minority-owned businesses where you can shop, we've compiled a list! Much of the list is taken from the DeKalb Area Women's Center's wonderful directory of women-owned and co-owned businesses in DeKalb County:
