Women’s March California and Women’s March Inc. are separate organizations that arose from a shared grassroots movement sparked by the presidential election of 2016.
Women’s March California is a 501c3 with thirteen chapters. Women’s March California does not share leadership, structure or funding with Women’s March Inc. We do not have any input on the makeup of their board or their decision making, and we do not receive any monies from them.
The Women’s March movement began as a vision of an America that is fair, just and inclusive. On January 21, 2017, five million people worldwide peacefully marched in support of that vision. One million marched in California.
Hundreds of local chapters organized around the Unity Principles of social and environmental justice at the time. Many chapters remained active and to serve their communities year-round, advocating for progress. While Women’s March California works with other Women’s March chapters around the country, we operate independently.
Women’s March California represents one million marchers, thirteen chapters and over one hundred actions monthly. These range from marches to educational events to advocacy to voter registration drives, and more.
Since our inception, Women’s March California has oriented our mission of harnessing the political power of diverse women and their communities toward creating transformative social change. We believe our diversity makes us stronger, and that working together sparks change.
Women’s March California is committed to pressing forward toward the vision of shared humanity and equity for all. We do not tolerate hate speech, bigotry, white supremacy, racism, misogyny, anti-semitism, homophobia, islamophobia, transphobia, or any other form of hatred.
We are united because of the time, energy, and dedication of our communities. We are building the future we want and deserve. The strength of our movement is built from the power of each of you. Your presence, your voice, your action, and your vote inspires millions.
We march on again on January 19, 2019, and work tirelessly year-round for our Unity Principles which include Women's Rights, Disability Rights, Civil Rights, Workers Rights, Reproductive Rights, Immigrants Rights, Environmental Justice, LGBTQIA Rights, and an End to Violence. Let's march forward - together!
