CALCASA and the Partnership will Participate in the Women’s March

0 comments

The Women’s March Sacramento focuses on engaging youth, uplifting women leaders, advocating for gender equity, fighting voter suppression and fighting for the fair protection of all human rights. As the State Sexual Violence and Domestic Violence Coalitions, we believe that individuals, families and communities are safer when we center the needs of those on the margins, most affected by these issues. Together with our Members, CALCASA and the Partnership advance public policy agendas that address the multiple oppressions survivors face in California every day.

Therefore, in solidarity with thousands of people across the state and nation, CALCASA and the Partnership will join National Women’s Marches on Saturday, January 20th. We will publicly affirm our commitment to social justice and equity by marching in Sacramento and other locations throughout the state.

CALCASA and the Partnership also invite our Members to consider participating in these marches as well. If you plan to be in the Sacramento area, you’re welcome to march with us. Meet us at 9:30 a.m. at Southside Park: 2115 6th St, Sacramento, CA 95818—specifically at the corner of W & 8th Street.

If you plan to be in the Orange County area, you’re welcome to march with us, meet us at 9:00 am on the corner of West Civic Center Drive and North Flower Street in downtown Santa Ana, CA. If you plan to be in the Los Angeles area, you’re welcome to march with us, meet us at Pershing Square Park. 532 s. Olive St. Los Angeles CA. CALCASA will also be present across the Nation in Washington D.C. For those in other parts of the state and country, you may select from a number of other local events.

Representing California’s rich diversity, our Coalitions are excited to position sexual and domestic violence alongside other movements and multiply our collective strength. We encourage you to keep up with CALCASA and the Partnership on January 20th by following us on social media.
