You probably heard about the Women’s March in Washington D.C., which will be held Saturday, January 21 in order to bring light to women’s issues, but did you know that there will be sister marches held all across the world at the same time?

The Mission

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.

In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.

We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.

As I type this, there are 616 marches planned across the world, and my daughter and I, along with the Collective bloggers and a few close friends, will be attending the largest march in our area on Saturday morning to advocate for women everywhere. The guest list includes speakers, artists and supporters from all over California and thousands of people who support women’s rights. If you’re in SoCal like we are, I encourage you to attend and support women’s health, unified communities and positive change in our country. If you’re nowhere near California, check out the website for opportunities to attend in a city near you.
