We are people of all ages and genders who share the belief that empowerment calls for inclusion, expression, activism, and involvement. Use your voice to express your concern, be it equal rights, immigration reform, social justice, or ending gun violence.
This year’s Women’s March theme is #TruthToPower and celebrating the #WomensWave. The Tri-Valley march theme is #UseYourVoice.
Women’s March Mission
The mission of Women’s March is to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change. Women’s March is a women-led movement providing intersectional education on a diverse range of issues and creating entry points for new grassroots activists & organizers to engage in their local communities through trainings, outreach programs and events. Women’s March is committed to dismantling systems of oppression through nonviolent resistance and building inclusive structures guided by self-determination, dignity and respect.
