Join the march
Saturday, January 20, 10 a.m., Southside Park to State Capitol, no cover
Last year, millions of people took a stand for women’s rights, racial justice, smarter environmental policy and related issues during the largest single-day protest in American history. The 2017 Women’s March was in part to protest the inauguration of a man who has made so many disparaging comments about women, they’re impossible (or too depressing) to keep track of. A year later, there is still work to be done. Many women have spoken out against sexual aggressors in the news and entertainment industries, and in government. Adama Iwu, recognized as one of Time’s People of the Year (the Silence Breakers), will be a keynote speaker when the crowd gathers at the State Capitol Saturday. Iwu is one of the founders of We Said Enough, an organization created to address systemic harassment in the state legislature. Fellow members Samantha Corbin and Alicia Lewis will also speak. 2115 6th Street, www.womensmarchsac.com.
