HPAE Supports Women’s March on Washington


The HPAE State Executive Council has voted to support the Women’s March on Washington, which will be held January 21, 2017, the day after the inauguration of the new President. The march will bring together hundreds of thousands of Americans who believe in inclusion, democratic rights for all Americans, and social justice.
