Women’s March Oakland | 2018

Saturday, January 20, 2018 - 10:00 am | Cost: FREE
Lake Merritt Amphitheater | Lake Merritt Blvd, Oakland, CA



Women’s March Oakland 2018 is a rally and march in partnership with the Bay Area chapter of youth organization March for Our Future. They are joining 19 other California chapters in hosting rallies on the anniversary of the historic Women’s March.

This anniversary event will focus on voter education and participation as well as uplifting tomorrow’s leaders, with the theme, “Hear Our Vote: March for Our Future.”

Women’s March Oakland 2018 is a nonpartisan, peaceful event that will give people from across the East Bay and beyond the opportunity to activate their communities, engage and support youth, and publicly proclaim that women’s rights are human rights and human rights are women’s rights in line with the Unity Principles.
