Women's March 2019: Happening Throughout California!

When: Saturday, January 19, 2019

Where: Various locations in the SF Bay Area and throughout the entire State of California

It's time to march again.

The 2017 Women’s March inspired hundreds of women to run, millions more to vote, and dozens to win elected office. The 2019 Women’s March marks two years of resistance to the Trump presidency, two years of training new activists, and two years of building power. And this time, we're coming back with an agenda.

On January 19, 2019, we’re going to flood the streets of Washington, D.C., and cities across the globe. The #WomensWave is coming, and we’re sweeping the world forward with us.

The Third Annual Women’s March will be held January 19, 2019, and California is no exception.

UNITY PRINCIPLES

The Women’s March on Washington convened a broad and diverse group of leaders to produce an intersectional platform known as the Unity Principles. Representing a new understanding of the connected nature of our struggles and a vision of our collective liberation, the Unity Principles continue to be a guiding light for our movement.

We believe that Women’s Rights are Human Rights and Human Rights are Women’s Rights. We must create a society in which women – including Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, disabled women, Muslim women, women of all faiths or non-Faiths, lesbian queer and trans women – are free and able to care for and nurture their families, however they are formed, in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments.

ENDING VIOLENCE
Women deserve to live full and healthy lives, free of all forms of violence against our bodies. We believe in accountability and justice in cases of police brutality and ending racial profiling and targeting of communities of color. It is our moral imperative to dismantle the gender and racial inequities within the criminal justice system.

REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS
We believe in Reproductive Freedom. We do not accept any federal, state or local rollbacks, cuts or restrictions on our ability to access quality reproductive healthcare services, birth control, HIV/AIDS care and prevention, or medically accurate sexuality education. This means open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people, regardless of income, location or education.

LGBTQIA RIGHTS
We firmly declare that LGBTQIA Rights are Human Rights and that it is our obligation to uplift, expand and protect the rights of our gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans or gender non-conforming brothers, sisters, and siblings. We must have the power to control our bodies and be free from gender norms, expectations, and stereotypes.

WORKER’S RIGHTS
We believe in an economy powered by transparency, accountability, security, and equity. All women should be paid equitably, with access to affordable childcare, sick days, healthcare, paid family leave, and healthy work environments. All workers – including domestic and farm workers, undocumented and migrant workers – must have the right to organize and fight for a living minimum wage.

CIVIL RIGHTS
We believe Civil Rights are our birthright, including voting rights, freedom to worship without fear of intimidation or harassment, freedom of speech, and protections for all citizens regardless of race, gender, age or disability. We believe it is time for an all-inclusive Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

DISABILITY RIGHTS
We believe that all women’s issues are issues faced by women with disabilities and Deaf women. As mothers, sisters, daughters, and contributing members of this great nation, we seek to break barriers to access, inclusion, independence, and the full enjoyment of citizenship at home and around the world. We strive to be fully included in and contribute to all aspects of American life, economy, and culture.

IMMIGRANT RIGHTS
Rooted in the promise of America’s call for huddled masses yearning to breathe free, we believe in immigrant and refugee rights regardless of status or country of origin. We believe migration is a human right and that no human being is illegal.

ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE
We believe that every person and every community in our nation has the right to clean water, clean air, and access to and enjoyment of public lands. We believe that our environment and our climate must be protected and that our land and natural resources cannot be exploited for corporate gain or greed – especially at the risk of public safety and health.

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!

Sincerely,

Women's March California
