What to do post-march
The city has plenty of options to keep you engaged for the evening once the march concludes. (Continued civic engagement in the weeks and months to come is up to you.) First, leave your posters at the sign drop-off location on 6th Avenue between 46th and 47th street to lighten your load and get ready to celebrate.
RunVoteLead, in collaboration with Bustle, is hosting an event called “Women Run 2018” in the Helen Mills event space on West 26th Street. From 4-8pm, female activists will speak out about converting energy into action, followed by an open discussion about the culture of sexual assault -- and what to do about it.
At sundown, on the steps of the main branch of the New York Public Library, the Center for Fiction will lead a public reading of literary works that target xenophobia, sexism, racism, and hate. The readers will include prominent writers like Anne Carson, Tina Chang, and Sahar Muradi.
Additionally, the New York Society For Ethical Culture on the Upper West Side will provide free hot cocoa for folks who want to warm up and talk about their experiences.
For some serious well-earned reveling, stop by the Reclaiming My Time Day Party at Public House on East 41st Street. Relax with some festive drink specials, plenty of food, and tons of great company -- your $20 suggested donation ticket will be split evenly between Emily’s List and the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund (your ticket includes one free drink).
If you’re outer-borough-bound, hit the BAM Cafe for a free post-march concert with Flor de Toloache, the first all-female mariachi ensemble. Or head to the Astoria World Manor in Queens for a full evening of drinking, dining, and dancing. All the proceeds from your $125 ticket will go towards efforts to support the LGBTQ movement, and your ticket will include dinner, live music, and an open bar for the duration of the event, from 7pm until midnight.
