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.
The rally and march starting point will be at Lake Merritt Amphitheater in Oakland, CA. The march will proceed up 14th Street, ending at Frank Ogawa Plaza with a Call to Action Alley.
Accessibility information for the route: The route is 0.9 miles. It is uphill for the first couple of blocks to Oak Street. There is a slight uphill slope from Oak to Madison. There is a bad curb cut at 14th and Alice on the right, and another one at 14th and Franklin on the right.
Can I bring banners, signs or flags?
Posters and signs are allowed, but not with the use of wooden, plastic or metal sign posts. Instead, we encourage people to use cardboard sign posts (or rolled up poster paper). Flags are allowed, but not on a pole.
What items are not allowed at the march and rally?
They ask that you do not bring backpacks to the event. Instead, please bring clear bags. No alcohol, weapons of any kind, dogs or pets (service animals only, please), or bikes are permitted. Please park your bike before the march begins.
