Celebrate International Women’s Day with us on Friday, March 8th, at Calder Plaza!

On Friday, March 8th, the world will celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD). It is a time to recognize the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women and a day that marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

To commemorate this global holiday, SowHope will be hosting a community-wide event in Grand Rapids on March 8th, 2024. Beginning at 12:00pm, there will be a brief presentation honoring local women leaders who make a difference in our community. This will be followed by a 1-mile celebration march through Grand Rapids, beginning and ending at Calder Plaza. This is an opportunity for everyone to celebrate their own cultural heritage and women everywhere. Historically, women around the world celebrate IWD by walking through the streets, dancing and holding flags of their native countries. Want to emulate this beautiful practice and bring it to downtown Grand Rapids!
