A woman's work is never done. For the third year straight, Women’s March San Francisco will take to the streets to host a rally and march centered on human rights, civil liberties and social justice for all.

This year's march takes place on January 19th at 11:30am, and will kick off with a rally hosted by comedian and actor Mona Shaikh at Civic Center Plaza. Speakers include advocates and community leaders covering a wide array of issues including anti-semitism, immigration, indigenous peoples rights, LGBTQIA rights and representation, reproductive rights, and socioeconomic and social justice. The lineup includes SF Mayor London Breed; Gilda Gonzales, CEO of Planned Parenthood NorCal and the first Latina to serve as CEO of a California Planned Parenthood affiliate; Annita Lucchesi, who maintains one of the largest databases of cases of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls in Canada and the United States; and award-winning poet, arts educator, community organizer, and mental health advocate Terisa Siagatonu among many others. 

After the rally, the march will commence at 1:30pm and conclude at the Embarcadero.

“We aim to bring together women and allies to reaffirm our commitment to building a positive and just future for all," says Sophia Andary, chair of Women’s March San Francisco. They heard our Voice in 2017, our Votes in 2018, and in 2019 they will know #TruthToPower.”
