Help USM students attend the Women's March on Washington!

The Women & Gender Studies Program will be chartering a bus to take students to join the Women’s March on Washington, which will take place on Inauguration Day on January 21st, 2017. We will be sending any and all interested students regardless of their ability to pay. We are asking anyone who is able to contribute funds to this effort to please make a donation. Our suggested donation is the price of an individual bus ticket, or around $180, but any amount will help. We request that you make your donations prior to December 27th.
