In 2019 the Tri-Valley Women’s Action Group partnered with Livermore Indivisible, Students for Social Change, and OFA East Bay Central and organized our first march in Pleasanton, CA.
On January 18, 2020, Students for Social Change will lead us as we march once again to:
- Celebrate the centennial of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which gave women the right to vote
- Honor 55 years of Voting Rights Act which prohibits voting practices and procedures that discriminate on the basis of race, color or membership in a language minority group
- Empower women to vote, volunteer and run for elected offices
- Ensure a complete count in Census 2020 to safeguard equity, fair representation, and funding in our communities
“Let us march on ballot boxes until brotherhood becomes more than a meaningless word in an opening prayer, but the order of the day on every legislative agenda.” – Martin Luther King Jr. at the Conclusion of the Selma to Montgomery March, March 25, 1965
