Are you interested in participating in one of the Women’s Marches that are being organized in San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose? The Coastside Democratic Club is organizing carpools and groups to attend the marches.

The San Francisco march will rally with speakers, arts and music from 4 – 6PM at Civic Center in San Francisco. At 6PM it will begin a reverent, festive candlelight march down Market St. to Justin Herman Plaza. To coordinate with a group from the Coastside, contact Barbara Dye

The San Jose march is scheduled from 10AM -3PM, starting at City Hall and Ending at Cesar Chavez Plaza. To coordinate with a group from the Coastside, contact Harvey Rarback at

As yet we have no organizer for Oakland. Please email if you are interested in organizing a group for that march.

The march organizers describe the marches as follows: ‘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 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.”
