Women's March in Santa Maria
The Women’s March Santa Maria Valley announces its 2nd annual Women’s March to be held on Saturday, January 18th, in coordination with sister marches in cities and communities around the globe. Why do we march? Because being silent is not an option, especially during an election year.
“The Santa Maria Women’s March is led by women, but is for everyone,” said Audy Macdonald, a spokesperson for Women’s March SMV. “When women rise, we bring our communities with us, and our March will bring together people from all backgrounds, faiths, genders, ethnicities, disabilities, sexualities, ages, and immigration statuses.”
We will march together again as part of the nationwide Women’s March movement. “We recognize that transformative changes are driven by grassroots actions and political activism,” continues Macdonald. “Our Women’s March promotes and celebrates the empowerment of all women in the Santa Maria Valley as we continue to work together to create change and inclusion in our city and county.”
