Join community leaders and activists for a rally in Downtown Stockton in support of the Women's March movement.
We will have a small information table at the rally, after the march is complete from 10 to Noon.
From the Event Organizers:
At 9:00 AM, marchers should begin to gather at Eden Park (924 N El Dorado St, Stockton, CA). Anyone who is not planning to march is welcome to gather at Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Plaza. More than 25 organizations plan to have vendor booths to share information about their organizations and meet you! Please stop by and thank our vendors for their bold support of our work.
At 9:30 AM, march organizers will begin to draw the crowd together at Eden Park for elders from indigenous groups to perform a ritual blessing. Shortly after, LaTona Byas from The OWL Movement will perform a spoken word piece she authored. Immediately following, indigenous leaders will lead the crowd along the route, heading south on El Dorado St toward Fremont St. The route is approximately 3.5 city blocks and typically takes about 10 minutes to complete. The street will remain closed as long as there are marchers along the route. Attendees will fill in to MLK Plaza.
At 10:00 AM, the post-march rally will begin! We have a powerhouse lineup of community members and leaders who will share stories, ideas, and more with you.
