SAN FRANCISCO—The Women’s March is making its way to the Bay Area. The march will be making stops in Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose. The national movement—which started with the Women’s March on Washington, that aimed to unify those who stand in support of “human rights, civil liberties, and social justice for all,” according to the Women’s March Bay Area website.

The Women’s March event in San Francisco will take place on January 21 from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. The march will begin at the Civic Center Plaza and end at Justin Herman Plaza. The rally is scheduled from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., while the candlelit march will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The Women’s March organization states that the January 21 event is not a protest, but a peaceful celebration of human rights.

While the event is free and tickets are not required, the organization encourages participants to register on the respective Eventbrite pages for their chosen event city. The Eventbrite website, including its app, will provide updates prior to and on the day of the event. Women’s March volunteers will also use the registrations to gauge the amount of people to be expected so that preparations can be made.

Women’s March defines themselves as a peaceful group “recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.” The organization calls upon “all defenders of human rights” to join in.

The Women’s March Bay Area is relying upon volunteers and donations, Wine Down SF will be hosting a fundraiser specifically for the Women’s March on Friday, January 20 at 5:00 p.m.  A cover charge of $5-10 is recommended but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
