Impact Statement- Women's March Los Angeles 2018
Women’s March LA Foundation – Impact Statement 2018 Anniversary Event
Women’s March Los Angeles – Impact Statement 2018 Anniversary Event
“First, we MARCH, then we VOTE”
The Women’s March Los Angeles Foundation invites all the 750,000 Angelenos who helped us fill the streets to join us AGAIN on January 20th, 2018 in downtown LA! If you missed the last March – it’s not too late to be a part of history and we need you… together we will show the power of our collective voice!
At Women’s March LA Foundation, we recognize that there is no true peace, freedom, or inclusion without equity for all. Our event on January 20th will feature music, art, community booths, and speakers in a shared voice of resistance with advocacy aligned with the national Women’s March Unity Principles: ending violence, protection of reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, workers’ rights, civil rights, disability rights, immigrant rights, Indigenous people’s rights and environmental justice. We look forward to sharing this experience with you and engaging our community even further.
The 2018 Anniversary event will provide participants the tools, and amplify their motivation, to use their vote as their voice to build government that reflects their ideals. We will create a safe and peaceful space where the important issues of voter turnout, access, restrictions, and intimidation will be addressed and begin a plan of action leading up to November 2018 and beyond.
Our votes matter.
Our presence matters.
We vote for ourselves and for those who cannot.
Our LA event is part of the Women’s March California Coalition and one of many events being planned across our state. We have key elections here in California in 2018 and the time is now to prepare!
We believe that together we can create transformative social change. Our experience from the Women’s March 2017 shows that together we have impact beyond our wildest expectations. We will use the power of the Women’s March on January 20 to bring attention to the urgency of preparing for the November elections and to augment and magnify the work being done by our partner community organizations to turn out the vote in 2018 and work on important voting initiatives in the future.
