What

The Women's March is a national movement to unify and empower everyone who stands for women’s rights, human rights, civil liberties, and social justice for all. This is a non-partisan and peaceful event. People will unite locally and nationally in every state and major metropolitan area to stand with us in solidarity for the American values we represent.

Who

We welcome all people to join us as we unite locally and nationally. We seek to unify and empower everyone who stands for women’s rights, human rights, civil liberties, and social justice for all.

Why

We march to support and inspire each other and to remind our great nation to respect, honor and protect our diversity and our freedoms. We believe change comes from taking positive, constructive action.  

We find solace and strength in the principles of inclusion, civility, and compassion for our shared humanity.

The Bay Area Marches are being coordinated with the Women’s March in Washington, geared toward fostering community and action at the local, grassroots level.
