Saturday: #MeToo Rally Starts at UWS Trump Hotel

On Saturday starting at 1 p.m., people are expected to rally to support the #metoo movement for victims of sexual harassment and abuse in front of the Trump International Hotel at 60th Street and Central Park West.

The #MeTooRallyNYC, set to take place Saturday, aims to show how many people have experienced sexual harassment, organizers Connie Vasquez and Annmarie Haubert said.

“The intent is, very much for me, there’s strength in numbers and look around you and look how many of us there are and we have survived and this is really a healing opportunity,” Vasquez said in an interview with amNewYork.

There will be speakers, including NOW-NYC President Sonia Ossorio, and musicians. Here’s the schedule, and the Facebook page:

1:00 – 1:15 Welcome by #MeTooRallyNYC organizers Connie Vasquez and Annmarie Haubert

2:30-3:00 TAKE ACTION: Stick Up for Survivors in Columbus Circle subway station at the Columbus Circle subway station (enter near the globe/ going toward 1 Uptown)
