March March for the Vote

March March for the Vote
Cornerstone of our Democracy
Saturday, March 4, 2023 2:00 – 4:00 PM
Water's Edge Park, Corpus Christi, Texas

March March for the Vote is a high energy community gathering in Corpus Christi, Texas. 
Together we will remember, honor and celebrate those bold, courageous and powerful people 
who gathered in our nation's capital for the National Women's Suffrage Parade of 1913.

Our goal is to keep alive the spirit of the Suffragists who sacrificed for the right to vote
and promote the benefits of advocacy. Their fight spanning 72 years, beginning in
Seneca Falls, NY in 1848, would ultimately result in the passage of the 19th
Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920; whereby, many - but not all - women
were finally given the right to vote in National elections.

Each March is designated as National Women's History month and is intended to inspire
and encourage all people to continue the fight for the vote, as well as other rights for
March March for the Vote is a collaborative effort with organizers - including the League
of Women Voters – Corpus Christi and Corpus Christi Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma
Theta, Inc. – whose roots date back to the infamous 1913 March for the Vote.
Other local organizers include the YWCA of Corpus Christi, Texas Association of Black
Personnel in Higher Education (TABPHE-CC), Women Entrepreneur Society of Corpus
Christi, Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas, Corpus Christi American Federation of Teachers,
as well as other women from the Coastal Bend Region.

Event activities include a group march around Water's Edge Park, speakers, vendors
and food trucks. It is a great opportunity to learn, reflect and remember. Bring the
whole family to this celebration!
