"It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences." — Audre Lorde
The Women's March is a national movement to unify and empower everyone who stands for human rights, civil liberties, and social justice for all. We stand together in solidarity for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.

Some points: This is a women-led-movement for everyone. The march is inclusive and we are working hard to ensure it is family friendly. We encourage you to march in one of the three Bay Area sister marches (San Francisco, San Jose, or Oakland). It is important now more than ever to stand by our communities especially the ones most at risk with the new administration. This is a March and rally; not a protest. The idea is to unite and show that we stand together and will not allow hate to divide us. We are trying to convey that this march be peaceful and positive, so please make sure to do the same.
