"The American Labor Museum's International Women's Day March scheduled for Sunday, March 8, 2020"

Haledon, NJ -  The American Labor Museum will host it's first International Women's Day March on Sunday, March 8th, 2020.

The March is part of New Jersey's Nineteenth Amendment Centennial Initiative, which commemorates the passage of the Constitutional admendment that granted women across the country with the legal right to vote.  While this parade honors women's solidarity, activism and achievements, it also acknowledges the inequities and challenges New Jersey women of all backgrounds have faced and continue to confront from 1920 to the present day.

March 8th is a significant day for this March because it is a global day of celebrating social, economic and political achievements of women.

All community organizations, unions, businesses, cultural groups, and individuals interested in joining this historic march can contact the museum at (973) 595-7953, by email at labormuseum@gmail.com or visit the museum's website www.labormuseum.net.

The Botto House National Landmark, headquarters of the American Labor Museum, is located at 83 Norwood Street in Haledon, New Jersey.  It was the meeting place for over 20,000 silk mill workers during the 1913 Paterson Silk Strike.  The museum offers a free lending library, restored period rooms, changing exhibits, museum store, Old World Gardens, educational programs and special events.  The Museum's hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 9AM-5PM.  Tours are offered Wednesday through Saturday from 1PM-4PM or by appointment.
