Join grassroots women’s organizations from throughout the Bay Area and the International Women’s Alliance on Saturday, March 11th in commemorating the 108th International Working Women’s Day in honor of the first women strikers in 1909 and to continue to build our collective resistance and people power to RISE against Fear, RESIST attacks on our communities, and UNITE for Self-Determination!
In just six weeks time since assuming presidency, Trump has launched violent attacks on the rights of women, Muslim, and LGBTQ communities; infringed on the self determination of native people with the continuation of the Dakota Access and Keystone Pipeline; and denied citizens their basic rights of accessible health care and education. This administration threatens to rollback decades of hard-fought struggles and victories by our mothers, grandmothers and generations before us.
People in the US and around the world are now taking to the streets and women resistors, youth, and workers are on the front lines of liberation movements.
Bring your children and families, aunties and grandmothers. This will be a family friendly march and celebration that will be accessible for children, elders, and people with disability. We will also be organizing our own safety/security team.

The march will be 1.2 miles long from 24th Street Mission BART to Mission Dolores Park. People who are unable to march the entire route can take BART directly from 24th Street BART to 16th street BART (5 blocks away from the ending location). There will be a slight incline to the march from Mission street to the park.
There will be a designated section of the march formation towards the front for families with children. Volunteers will be on standby to support parents in this contingent. We will have water and first aid available for people who need it.
We will have a security plan and volunteers to ensure the safety and security of everyone marching with us.
There is limited access to seating at either the starting or ending location. The rally at the beginning of the march will be about an hour. The ending rally/celebration will be about 1 hour.
The program will primarily be in English, with translation from non-English speakers to English. We will have designated people with Spanish and Tagalog language ability in the march to check-in with people.
There is no public restroom at the 24th Street Mission BART station, but there are surrounding the station that may allow bathroom access. Dolores Park has public bathrooms.
