There will be a ‘motivation’ each day this week leading up to the Women’s March on January 20. Please help build support for the day by sharing these posts on your social media feeds.
The sections labeled “Good News, Somebody to March With, and Why We March” will change daily. Email us if you have information to be shared as the week goes on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just The Facts:
Women’s March San Diego | Hear Our Vote 2018
Women’s March North County San Diego 2018
Today’s Good News:
The Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) will be running extra Trolley service for the march, starting at 8am.
Sycuan Green Line trains will run every 7.5 minutes between SDCCU Stadium and downtown San Diego, and Orange and UC San Diego Blue Line trains will run 15-minute service.
Marchers coming from north and east San Diego County are encouraged to park & ride from SDCCU Stadium.
Plan ahead and avoid ticket machine lines at stations. Download the Compass Cloud mobile ticketing app to get a $5 Day Pass right to your smartphone (up to 10 passes per phone). Buy your pass(es) in advance, then activate the morning of the march before you get onboard.
For more transit information, visit the MTS Women’s March event page.
Today’s Bad News:
Wait! I just heard that @SANDAG has (again) made the decision to shut down the Coaster on the day of the Women’s March for “maintenance,” leaving thousands of North County ladies w/o public transit to March. Please help me express your outrage! #FixSANDAG

North County Somebody to March With:
Please join the ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties at the North County San Diego Women’s March as we rally in solidarity with Women’s March events and sister marches across the nation a year after the start of the Trump presidency. Register Here
This year’s theme is “Hear Our Vote” – the mission of Women’s March San Diego is to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change.
Last January, millions of people all over the world gathered to rally against sexism, bigotry, racism, Islamophobia, xenophobia, homophobia, violence, and inequality. Join us and thousands of allies nationwide who believe that women’s rights are human rights – regardless of race, gender identity, immigration status, sexual identity, economic status, ethnicity, religion, immigration status, sexual identity, age or disability.
These are inclusive events and all who support women’s rights are welcome! We will offer those participating in the Marches with us a limited supply of ACLU of San Diego t-shirts! Make sure you RSVP for the March you’ll be attending and let us know your t-shirt size.
Why We March:
