THE WOMEN’S MARCH MOVEMENT
'“On January 21, 2017, people of all backgrounds—women and men and gender nonconforming people, young and old, of diverse faiths, differently abled, immigrants and indigenous—came together, 5 million strong, on all seven continents of the world. We were answering a call to show up and be counted as those who believe in a world that is equitable, tolerant, just and safe for all, one in which the human rights and dignity of each person is protected and our planet is safe from destruction. Grounded in the nonviolent ideology of the Civil Rights movement, the Women’s March was the largest coordinated protest in U.S. history and one of the largest in world history.” — Women’s March
Women’s March COMES TO Stockton
A group of community organizers in Stockton originally wanted to produce a local Women’s March in January 2018. The nearest demonstration would be held in Sacramento, about 50 miles away, and we knew that barriers such as cost, transportation, childcare, etc. would make it difficult for people from all backgrounds to participate. However, we found that it would take a great deal of planning, coordination and (frankly) money to pull off an event of this kind. Instead, we worked together to organize a delegation to the Sacramento Women’s March. More than 100 people attended the demonstration and Stockton made its voice heard at the California Capitol.
This year, we are bringing the Women’s March to Stockton, California. Will you show up?
