As a result of the midterms, at least 125 women will serve in the U.S. House and Senate and at least 9 women will become governors. About a third of these new representatives will be women of color, including the first Native American women and the first Muslim women to serve in Congress.
“But there will still be 3 men for every woman serving in Congress in 2019. And women still represented less than 25% of congressional candidates this year.”

Our work started in November 2016 and it continues - as it must!
We are happy to announce that another Women's March is scheduled for January 19, 2019 in San Francisco and San Jose. This year’s marches are centered on the themes #TruthToPower and celebrating the #WomensWave.
Our priority is to provide a safe, accessible, and respectful environment in which people from all walks of life can come together. Each march is 100% volunteer organized, and right now, Bay Area organizers are working hard to secure city permits, arrange safety measures, publicize the marches, map the routes, and send our message of unity to the world. Your donations help us cover the expenses that we will incur to produce our marches. We can’t do it without your support!
Please join us in donating what you can today so our voices can be heard across the Bay and across the nation. And please join us and thousands more as we march on January 19th, 2019.
Please use the online Donation form accessible above, or make checks payable to: Social Good Fund with a notation on the memo “Women's March Bay Area" or “WMBA”.
