Because you're never too young to stand up for what is right! We all went down to DTLA for another historic Women's March. We didn't get to do too much marching, given there were 500,000+ people crammed into a small area, but our voices were heard!
2018 Impact Statement
At Women’s March LA Foundation, we recognize that there is no true peace, freedom, or inclusion without equity for all. Our event on January 20, 2018 featured music, art, community booths, and speakers in a shared voice of resistance with advocacy aligned with the national Women’s March Unity Principles: ending violence, protection of reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, workers’ rights, civil rights, disability rights, immigrant rights, Indigenous people’s rights and environmental justice. We look forward to engaging our community even further.
The 2018 event provided participants the tools to amplify their motivation and to use their vote as their voice to build government that reflects their ideals. We created a safe and peaceful space where the important issues of voter turnout, access, restrictions, and intimidation could be addressed leading up to November 6, 2018 and beyond.
Our votes matter.
Our presence matters.
We vote for ourselves and for those who cannot.
Our LA event is part of the Women’s March California Coalition and one of many events across our state. We have key elections here in California on November 6, 2018 and the time is now to prepare!
We believe that together we can create transformative social change. Our experience from the Women’s March 2017 shows that together we have impact beyond our wildest expectations. We will use the power of the Women’s March to bring attention to the urgency of participating in the November 6, 2018 elections and to augment and magnify the work being done by our partner community organizations to turn out the vote in 2018 and work on important voting initiatives in the future.
