Event Information When: Saturday, January 21, 2016 from 9:00am-1:00pm Where: French Plaza Downtown Santa Ana (Corner of 4th and French) *location subject to change In response to the Women’s March on Washington Movement, local OC community groups have banned together to organize a march here in O.C.! Orange County will join sister marches across the nation in sending a message to the incoming administration that women’s rights are human rights and our diverse voices must be heard! Why is this happening? The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized and threatened many of us — immigrants, Muslims, Veterans, people who identify as LQBTQ+, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, and survivors of sexual assault. This march is the first step toward unifying our communities and sending a strong message to the new president and his administration that our voices matter. How can I or my organization get involved? If you or your organization is interested in participating please complete this form: Organization Participation Form To volunteer, complete the following form: Volunteer Participation Form Questions?
