Women’s March in Oakland 2018 is a rally and march in partnership with the Bay Area chapter of a youth organization, March for Our Future, on the anniversary of the historic Women’s March last year. This anniversary event will focus on voter education and participation as well as uplifting tomorrow’s leaders, with the theme, “Hear Our Vote: March for Our Future.”

The rally and march starting point will be at Lake Merritt Amphitheater in Oakland, CA. The march will proceed up 14th Street, ending at Frank Ogawa Plaza.

We also hope to have a table at the final ‘Call to Action Alley’ in Ogawa Plaza. The place we will all meet before the rally will be posted on the branch web page at least a week before the march.
