Come celebrate the launch of 99Rise's "California March for Democracy" with food & drinks, locally engaged speakers, and music to help send off our trailblazing Bay Area marchers!
We need your support and enthusiasm to begin our journey for democracy. Marchers will trek 480 miles, over the mountains and across the valleys of California, from L.A. to the state capitol in Sacramento, all to bring a simple demand to the leaders of our nation’s largest state: publicly acknowledge the crisis of corruption and take immediate action to end it.

Suggested Donation: $10 - $20
A $15 donation will get you 99Rise swag
A $20 donations means you'll be entered into a prize drawing (prizes TBA!)
NO ONE TURNED AWAY FROM LACK OF FUNDS
