DENVER — The 4th annual Womxn’s March Denver took place Saturday in downtown Denver. 

In addition to the march, and in lieu of a rally, the 2020 event was followed by an IMPACT EXPO inside the McNichols Civic Center Building located next to Civic Center Park. 

Events were scheduled at the park from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

The walk was a full mile. Drivers could expect road closures around Civic Center Park around the time of the march.

There were also four donation collection stations for feminine hygiene products to benefit local non profits and detention center residents who are economically challenged.

10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.: Impact expo 

The expo included two art exhibitions, two sessions of Womxn Building Resilience participatory art workshops, and table exhibits offered to nearly 60 Denver-area non-profit and grassroots organizations. 

Workshops included “Womxn Building Resilience” and a live podcast of “Dear White Womxn” for $10 each.

While there was no rally associated with the march, one is planned for later in 2020 to encourage voter participation.  

Last year, the Womxn's March Denver replaced the "e" with an "x" in the name, because they want to be inclusive of trans, non-binary and genderqueer persons who participate.
