CT NOW is going! Are you?
We’ve chartered 2 buses to transport people from Connecticut to the Women’s March on Jan. 21 in Washington, D.C. Come join us and be part of this historic event! Our buses will leave at 2 a.m. from two locations:
- Putnam Park & Ride at 3024 Main St. in Glastonbury
- Long Wharf commuter parking lot in New Haven
Seats are limited, and once they sell out, they are gone. Links to purchase tickets are below. Click on the appropriate Buy Now button, and you’ll be taken to a secure PayPal site to purchase your ticket with a credit card or PayPal account.
To make attending this event as affordable and meaningful as possible, we are offering the following ticketing options:
- $45 for CT NOW members (1 seat)
- $65 for a CT NOW member + one full-time student (total 2 seats)
- $65 for non-CT NOW members (1 seat)
Buses will leaves at promptly 2 am, so please plan to arrive at your departure site at least 15-20 minutes early. When we arrive in DC, we will be dropped at a metro station, where we will take a subway to the Lincoln Memorial, which is where the march begins. You will be responsible for paying the needed subway fare. Buses will then leave Washington at 7 pm, taking you back to the lot you left from.
Plans are in the works for food, goody bags and more for all who ride on our buses. Details will be shared as more specifics become available.

Founded in 1970, the Connecticut chapter of the National Organization for Women is proud to be part of the largest organization of feminist activists in the United States.
The grassroots arm of the women’s movement, we are one of more than 500 local and campus national NOW affiliates across the United States and a leader–rather than a follower–of public opinion.
NOW activists use both traditional and non-traditional means to push for social change. NOW members and partner organizations work together to organize mass marches, rallies, pickets, non-violent civil disobedience and immediate, responsive “zap” actions; lobby legislators; share stories; and otherwise carry out actions to meet our many priorities, which in their broadest sense focus on these six core issues:
- Winning economic justice and equality
- Guaranteeing equal rights for women through the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
- Championing abortion rights, reproductive freedom and other women’s health issues
- Opposing racism
- Fighting bigotry against lesbians and gays
- Ending violence against women and girls
Become a member of CT NOW today and help us carry out this important work! Our organization is run completely by volunteers. There are no paid staff members.
