Amplifying Women’s Voices: International Women’s Day 2018

March 8 @ 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

This International Women’s Day, Salt Lake City’s independent community radio station 90.9fm KRCL presents Amplifying Women’s Voices, a peaceful rally on Thursday, March 8 from 11:30am to 12:30pm at the Utah State Capitol Rotunda, hosted by KRCL’s Lara Jones and Eugenie Hero Jaffe with guest speakers representing women in politics and advocacy. (Speaker list to be announced.) All are invited to gather to celebrate women: their achievements, their legacies and their capacity to create positive change. We will unite to amplify women’s voices and to celebrate a bright future for girls and women around the globe. Special musical guest, the critically acclaimed 4-piece Lucius, who are poised to release their new album, “Nudes,” next month, joins the celebration and takes the stage at 12 noon to perform a short acoustic set. Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe, who together with bandmates Dan Molad and Peter Lalish comprise Lucius, discovered that by singing in unison they could create a tone and sound that became more powerful than they could as individual singers. The band’s intimate show at The State Room, later that evening, sold out immediately upon announce. KRCL and partner organizations believe that when women’s voices unite, powerful positive change can happen. In honor of the vibrant and bold women throughout history who have championed equal rights, we invite women and allies throughout Utah to wear bold and bright colors, bring signs of unity and support and join us for a rally to Amplify Women’s Voices. The goal is to not only celebrate women-identifying individuals from all walks of life, but to encourage women to run for public office, inspire all women to vote and to support legislation for equality for all.
