In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.
We have created a Women On A Roll shirt to wear at the march so we can participate as a contingency and find each other easily. Please note: this is optional and you are all welcome to join our group whether or not you chose to order the shirt. We have worked hard to keep the price as low as possible to make it affordable for everyone. Here is the design. Our new travel logo was recently created by Wesla Weller and I felt by adding these meaningful words around the globe created a strong message for uniting for world peace.

No weapons of any kind
No dogs or pets (service animals only, please)
Be mindful of all attendees, this event is open to everyone and is inclusive to anyone who would like to participate.
Do I need a ticket to attend?
No. All the marches should be free and public. If someone asks you to buy a ticket, don’t do it! We do have an Eventbrite page, but we are using this to spread the word, it is not necessary to register!
What is the status with permits?
We have obtained all necessary permits for this event in Los Angeles, and have been working in conjunction with the LAPD and City of LA to make this a peaceful event for all. This is the official Women’s March of Los Angeles.
What about safety and security?
We are taking health and safety very seriously. There will be measures in place for this.
Is it just for women only?
No. The march is open to everyone who stands for human rights, civil liberties, tolerance of diversity, and compassion for our shared humanity.
Is anyone coordinating travel to DC?
If it’s hard for you to get to DC, consider attending a local march. We are not fundraising at this time to sponsor travel to DC for individuals.
Is this a protest, march, or rally?
This is not a protest. The Women’s March is a celebration of human rights. In some cases, there will be a march and rally, but it depends on the event and what organizers have planned.
