Santa Cruz Women’s March: Truth to Power
January 9 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Santa Cruz Women’s March & Rally 2019 in Partnership with Santa Cruz Indivisible, and SCPD.
For the past two years Santa Cruz Women’s March has hosted the largest march in Santa Cruz history. The purpose: To allow all voices to be heard as the world joined in marching for multiple causes, civility and truth. Collectively we found our voices and showed those in power we will not back down. Marching together has changed how we think as a society and as individuals.
In light of the current political environment, this year’s CALL TO ACTION is ‘TRUTH to POWER’. We ask you to ‘Own your Truth and USE your POWER’.
We have made some good gains in 2018 but we need to dig deep and commit to continue to fight.
We ALL have the power to make a difference. Join us on January 19, 2019!
March begins at 10am at Pacific and Cathcart Street.
Line up to march behind the SANTA CRUZ WOMEN’S MARCH BANNER.
The route will follow Pacific and turn right onto Water, then turning ‘right’ into the County Parking Lot at the County Offices. 701 Ocean St, Santa Cruz, CA 95060.
The Rally will begin at 11am. Join us for music and inspirational speakers, art and political resistance activities as well as great food from local food trucks. Food Trucks A Go Go
Our partner Santa Cruz Indivisible is spearheading our collective ‘CALL TO ACTION’:
We have a goal of generating 3000 postcards on behalf of the Enough is Enough Voter Project to Save Title IX. Postcards will be available at the rally to fill out.
Non-Profits engaged in community support and political resistance will be here to provide you with additional direct actions you can take to make a difference as we head to 2020.
