Facebook post:

March with Women's March Sacramento on October 17, 2020 as we #ALLRISE for RBG. For our women. For our gender non-conformers. For our Democracy. For our lives here in Sacramento and throughout the world.

Let us #ALLRISE in solidarity to ring loud and clear once again from here and all around the world on October 17 - to send an unmistakable message of our fierce opposition to this Administration and their oppressive agenda.

We ESPECIALLY stand against their abject disrespect towards Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat still warm with her fire and tenacious spirit. Sacramento also mourns the painful injustice and the precious loss of the life of dear Breonna Taylor and all Black womxn who fell before and after her - we call for their justice.

We RISE for freedom of reproductive choice. We RISE for family unification for immigrants, and we RISE for Trans access to healthcare. WE RISE AGAINST FORCED HYSTERECTOMIES.

Allied in spirit with Women’s March Global, we RISE for Compassion, Allyship, Respect, and Equity. We RISE with Sacramento’s civil rights leaders, local activists, elected officials, women’s rights advocates, star performers, and super artists.

Together, WE RISE.

We invite you to RISE WITH US and join forces for Get Out The Vote (GOTV), Activism, and Action!


We especially invite students and children to join us. We need the youth to RISE with us.
