Save the Date for the Next Women’s March

On January 19, 2019, Women’s March Bay Area will unite in San Jose and San Francisco once again to reaffirm its commitment to building a positive and just future for all, and to celebrate the spirit of resistance efforts over the past year. The march is designed to engage and empower all people to support women’s rights, human rights, social and environmental justice. AAUW San Jose will be participating in the San Jose march for the third straight year! As an all volunteer-run 501c(3), Women’s March Bay Area relies on community support to create the safe and inspiring events for which it is known. Donate here.
