Over 1% of the U.S. population marched on January 21, 2017 for human rights in 500 marches. Women’s March Inc, Women’s March Global and Women’s March California and local chapters around the world then turned that moment into a year round movement.

These chapters currently host or partner in over 100 events each month-- and host the annual march. Women's March chapters around the world march for our "Unity Principals". These principals include women’s rights, disability rights, immigrant’s rights, civil rights, environmental justice, an end to violence, reproductive rights, worker’s rights and LGBTQIA rights. If you agree with all of the unity principals, volunteer, partner or march. In 2017, we said, "Hear Our Voice". In 2018, we are saying, "Hear Our Vote". In 2019, we will say, we speak, "Truth to Power". Many more details to be announced.... Stay tuned!

Check out this link to Sam Harris’ description of mindfulness: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iwac6Uk-zyk Here’s your opportunity to learn how to practice mindfulness meditation within a non-religious community. Mindfulness meditation research has shown to be very beneficial for our mental, emotional, and physical health. Come to have fun, learn, grow, and be a part of a new group of people…people who are present and living for this life – not the after life! This Mindfulness Group meets Sunday mornings to learn, practice, and share about Mindfulness. • Important to know Beginners are welcome. I will teach you about the mind/body connection, guide you through a meditation, and then we will have discussion and conversation afterward.
