WE THE PEOPLE SOLIDARITY MARCH
Local citizens will protest to remind lawmakers who they work for and demand their accountability
Augusta Maine – September 21, 2019 – a We the People Solidarity March will take
place at 12pm at the State Capital Building. This peaceful assembly is one of
numerous We ThePeople Solidarity Marches being held in more than 60 cities. More than
100,000 people are expected to attend the We The People March being held in Washington,
D.C. on Saturday, September 21st to demonstrate that the current status quo is a threat to
our democracy and values.
The national We the People March is a grassroots effort spearheaded by activist and author
Amy Siskind, president of The New Agenda, and co-sponsored by concerned citizens and
activists from across the U.S. “So many of us worked for two years ahead of midterms, to take
a majority and put a check in place and finally have accountability. That hasn’t happened. So
many Americans are concerned with losing our democracy and values. We are marching to be
seen and heard, and to remind our elected officials that they work for us!” said Amy Siskind.
In addition to planning the D.C. event, local activists have organized solidarity marches across
the nation – and the globe – with more marches being added weekly.

The march is designed to highlight issues that a majority of Americans are deeply
concerned about such as gun control, kids in cages, the environment, corruption, kleptocracy
The We the People March will be a day of equity and inclusion that reflects our commitment
to peaceful assembly achieve our mission. For more information about the marches, visit
