Saturday, January 21 will see the Women’s March on Main as Sundance joins in the national day against discrimination.
In demonstrating universal respect for social justice and human rights issues ranging from race, ethnicity, gender, religion, immigration and health care, the independent film community will do their part and stand in solidarity with those apprehansive about the state of the country’s future.
The march will be led by Comedian Chelsea Handler and is one of 200 planned across all 50 states on the day. On the march, Handler states:
“Sundance has always been a platform for change: not only for filmmakers and filmmaking, but also for big ideas for the future,” Handler says. “If there’s anything I learned in the last year, it’s that we need to be louder and stronger than ever about what we believe in, so I joined some incredible women from around the country to bring our voices together in the streets of Park City. The Women’s March on Main will be an opportunity for the creative community and those in Utah to stand beside those in D.C.”
