Bringing Oakland and East Bay community members together to march for the Unity Principles.
What is the march?
Our annual march is a nonpartisan, peaceful event that gives people from across the East Bay and beyond the opportunity to activate their communities and publicly proclaim that women’s rights are human rights and human rights are women’s rights in line with the Unity Principles.
ORIGIN of the march
On January 21, 2017, more than 100,000 women and their allies marched in Oakland, part of a global mobilization of 5 million people for women’s rights, human rights, social justice and civil liberties.
That day sparked a movement that has galvanized the nation, harnessing the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change.
We have made our voices heard in town halls and state capitals, on Congressional phone lines and the news, down the street, and across the internet.
This is what democracy looks like. "We really just want to come out here so people can have their voices heard."
