together we rise

State Chapters




Charles Town

The Charles Town chapter meets every third Tuesday from 7-8:30 pm at the Tate House in Charles Town. The issues we address are fluid in nature, issues that are of a concern to our members and community. Our huddles are also framed and informed by Women’s March National. Currently we are focused on the moving of a plaque honoring Confederate soldiers that is placed on the front entrance door of the Jefferson County Courthouse. We have committed ourselves to supporting local charities and organizations who assist homeless and battered women and most recently have taken on a warm clothing drive and a feminine hygiene drive with great success. We continually involve ourselves in matters of national interest such as health care coverage and women’s reproductive rights. We strive for positive outreach to our LGBTQ and other communities that are being marginalized.  All are welcome. Together we rise.

Huntington

The Huntington chapter of Women's March West Virginia consists of a small but mighty (and growing) group of motivated activists. We hold huddles at least twice a month at the Cabell County public library, usually on Tuesday nights but sometimes on Saturday mornings. We have held several events and actions, including candlelight vigils, demonstrations, and rallies on a wide range of issues, We also complete service projects to benefit local organizations such as Branches Domestic Violence shelter, Golden Girls group home, the proposed "all-inclusive" playground, and Harmony House. We have been a participant in local marches and events such as the Science March, the Climate March, the Pride picnic, and Women's Equality Day. We welcome all who believe in progressive, all-inclusive values and being an active participant in our country's democracy.

Keyser

The Keyser Chapter meets once a month in various locations. We often meet with other progressive groups to support joint efforts. We have focused on raising awareness and fundraising for our local domestic violence shelter and food pantry. We have also assisted in sending aide to the islands affected by recent hurricanes. Our goal is to bring awareness to local and state issues related to intersectional feminism, reproductive health, and education.

Our group formed in 2017 using the power of women and our community to create social change. We are a women led organization.

Focusing on the well being of West Virginians is important to us, and we address a broad range of issues including women's rights, civil rights, health care access, immigrant rights, and more.  It is your voice that needs to be heard to make a difference in our community and our state. We are an all inclusive group. We believe we are stronger together.
