Women’s March on Washington, North County to be the first major march and rally in the area
On Jan. 21, 2017, organizers in North County, San Diego will hold a march and rally which will begin at 11 am at the San Marcos Civic Center and end at Palomar Community College. A rally at Palomar College with speakers, music, street art and food trucks will follow the march. Attendees may park for free at Palomar College or take the Sprinter. All are welcome to attend.
From the organizers: On January 21st, we will unite in North County San Diego for a March and Rally on Palomar Campus. We stand together in solidarity with our family, friends, and community for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are what makes our democracy great.
The rhetoric of the past election cycle insulted, demonized, demeaned and threatened many of us – immigrants, Muslims, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native Americans, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities and survivors of sexual assault. We stand together in the face of national and international concern. (Thanks to the Women’s March on Washington.)
We march here in North County to show solidarity with the March on Washington and our sister marches happening all over the country. We stand together recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending us all. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march and rally is the first step in unifying our communities and create change from the grassroots level up. We will work peacefully while cognizant that there is no true peace without justice and equity for all. This is an historic event for North County San Diego This is an event of inclusion and compassion.
Meet at San Marcos Civic Center at 11. At noon we will march to Palomar College for a rally at 1. Parking is free on campus. No parking at civic center. Music, food trucks, speakers, street art and tables for activist groups.
