WOMEN'S MARCH OAKLAND 2020

#OaklandCounts

Women’s March Oakland 2020 has a single goal: getting all of us counted in 2020. At this nonpartisan, peaceful event, we will mobilize to raise awareness, volunteer hours and funding to get a complete Census count in Alameda County and make our voices heard at the polls.

In addition to a march through the streets of downtown Oakland, this year’s event will feature our biggest Community Action Fair ever, with entertainment, food, art and a wide range of organizations offering opportunities to make a difference in Alameda County.

Date and Time: Saturday, January 18, 2020 @ 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Location: Frank Ogawa Plaza, 1 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, CA 94612

OUR VISION & MISSION at WOMEN'S MARCH OAKLAND

Women’s March Oakland envisions an East Bay free from systems of oppression and rooted in inclusive structures guided by autonomy, dignity and respect for all self-identified women and other vulnerable populations.

Our mission is to mobilize self-identified women and their communities to achieve transformative social change in Oakland and the East Bay. We provide intersectional education on a diverse range of issues and create entry points for new grassroots activists and organizers to engage in their communities.

We are committed to fighting for justice for all people, regardless of skin color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability or national origin. We categorically denounce and reject all forms of bigotry and hate, including racism, sexism, antisemitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, classism, xenophobia and ableism.
