Women’s March 2018: “Hear Our Vote”

Monday, November 13th, 2017

Title: Women’s March 2018: “Hear Our Vote”
Location: Civic Center, SF

Description: San Francisco & San Jose, CA – November 8, 2017 –Women’s March Bay Area (WMBA) today announces plans for action on Saturday, January 20th, 2018 – ‘Hear Our Vote.’ Save the date to activate and engage in San Francisco and San Jose.

Since the historic Women’s March on January 21, 2017, where hundreds of thousands of folks showed up across the Bay Area, WMBA has been working to turn a moment into a movement. Next January’s actions will focus on getting out the vote in the 2018 midterm elections. The year will focus on getting more women and allies into office and other leadership positions, with actions focused on voter registration, voter mobilization, supporting women running for office, and electing more women in more offices.

“The San Francisco march was the very last of hundreds of sister marches across the US last January, and watching folks pour through the streets under a downpour of rain, with a pink-lit City Hall in the background lit a fire in me and many others,”said Sophia Andary co-lead of Women’s March San Francisco. “We had great local representation at the Women’s Convention in Detroit and can say without hesitation that the energy and work of women are changing this country.”

Women’s March is a female-led movement providing intersectional education on a range of issues and creating entry points for new grassroots activists & organizers to engage with/in their local communities through trainings, outreach programs and events. The focus on voter education, voter outreach, and voter empowerment are encompassed in the actions’ theme, “Hear Our Vote!”

“Last year’s election compelled many of us to a level of action and activism that has changed our lives and our communities, forging connections across groups that have otherwise been siloed,” said Jenny Bradanini, co-lead of Women’s March San Jose. “As is clear from the unprecedented number of women candidates this cycle, the grassroots movement has taken hold. First we marched, now we run!”

The WMBA marches are two of eighteen planned across California that day, the state’s part of a national movement to unify and empower those who stand for women’s rights, human rights, civil liberties, and social justice for all.

Rally to Save Temporary Protected Status for Immigrants

Title: Rally to Save Temporary Protected Status for Immigrants
Location: SF City Hall Civic Center Steps

Description: RALLY TO SAVE TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS FOR IMMIGRANTS

The Trump administration is threatening to remove Temporary Protected Status from hundreds of thousands of Salvadorans, Hondurans, Nicaraguans, Syrians and Haitians and deport them. Many of these people have been here for years, even decades, coming to the United States during wars or natural disasters. This will tear families apart. It will be a major human rights disaster sending people back to situations of life-threatening violence where there are continuing conflicts or economic instability.

MOVILIZACIÓN PARA SALVAR EL ESTADO DE PROTECCIÓN TEMPORAL (TPS)

La administración de Trump está amenazando

con terminar el Estado de Protección Temporal (TPS) de centenares de miles de salvadoreños, hondureños, nicaragüenses, sirios y haitianos, y deportarlos. Muchas de esas personas han estado aquí por años, y hasta décadas, llegaron a los Estados Unidos durante guerras y desastres naturales. Habrá separación de familias. Será un desastre humanitario, porque enviará a la gente a situaciones de violencia que pondrán sus vidas en riesgo y donde todavía hay conflictos y
inestabilidad económica.

Union Day of Action

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

Title: Union Day of Action
Location: Union Square, Corner of Powell & Geary Streets, SF
Link out: Click here
Description: The racist rhetoric we heard during the presidential campaign is now becoming reality through policies such as the Muslim travel and immigration ban, and aggressive, increased deportations of persons who clearly are not “criminals”. Immigrant workers and communities of color are feeling increasingly under siege.

This past year, we have witnessed a historic level of action and resistance across North America. Now, more than ever, it’s time for working people to take a stand. We are planning to mobilize more than 20,000 members in 20 cities across North America to show that standing together in union is the best way to create an economy that works for everyone—not just the wealthiest 1%.

Join us for a rally for immigration reform, for an end to the police killing of African Americans without consequences (Black Lives Matter!), for the right of workers to organize a union, and for social and economic justice for all of us, not only the rich and powerful!

WHEN: Thursday October 19, 2017
TIME: 4:15 PM
LOCATION: Union Square in front of the St. Francis Hotel [corner of Powell St. & Geary St.]
