Join us in Oakland for the Women’s March on January 21st. The Women's March on Washington is a national movement for women, men, and children who stand for human rights, civil liberties, diversity, and compassion for our shared humanity.
The goal of this day is for women to stand together in
solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country. This all-inclusive, non-partisan event allows us to send a bold message to our administration and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. This is not a protest, political or anti- anything event. We support the advocacy and movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. HEAR OUR VOICE.
We will unite locally with the main march in DC and sister marches in every state and major metropolitan area across our great country to stand together for justice, tollerance and inclusion for all.
In California there are groups organizing for the DC March and several sister marches being held on the same day throughout the state. This document will be updated as details evolve over time.

Frequently Asked Questions (apply to all marches):
Do I need a ticket to attend?
No! All the marches should be free and public. If someone asks you to buy a ticket or register, don’t do it!
What is the status with permits?
All marches are working on permits and individual sites will be updated on status. In general, permits are not needed to march, but are needed for rallies.
How can I get involved or volunteer?
Please look at the local pages for volunteer information. All sites should have information about how to volunteer. When in doubt, send a message to one of the group organizers and they can help you.
What about safety and security?
All marches in CA and the National March are taking health and safety very seriously. There will be measures in place for this.
Is it just for women only?
NO! The march is open to all men, women, and children who stand for human rights, civil liberties, tolerance of diversity, and compassion for our shared humanity.
How do I donate money?
Each march - DC and local marches - is taking care of their own fundraising. Look at the march event page for details on fundraising.
Is anyone coordinating travel to DC?
If it’s hard for you to get to DC, consider attending a local march. We are not fundraising at this time to sponsor travel to DC for individuals.
Thought, there is a committee in LA that is working on arranging discounts for travelers to DC?
Is this a protest, march, or rally?
This is not a protest. The Women's March is a celebration of human rights. In some cases, there will be a march and rally, but it depends on the event and what organizers have planned.
