The Women’s March, 2019: A Global Wave

I’m excited about this Saturday’s Women’s March in San Francisco and San Jose.

Women’s March 2019

We had a #BlueWave in 2018 but it began the day after Trump’s inauguration.

On January 19, 2019, Women’s March Bay Area will unite in San Jose and San Francisco to reaffirm our commitment to building a positive and just future for all, and to celebrate the spirit of resistance efforts over the past year.

San Francisco Women’s March

The movement that began in 2017 is now a global demand for governments based on  human rights, the Rule of Law and Democratic Systems.

Americans won a battle in 2018 but we haven’t won the war and Putin’s weaponized trolls will work non-stop to divide us.

The wave must continue:

The Women’s March is a national movement to unify and empower everyone who stands for human rights, civil liberties, and social justice for all. We stand together in solidarity for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.  The Women’s March

A personal note: I’ve been ill and have a post in the works to explain what happened: I will slowly catch up on comments and blog visits.

I am NOT affiliated with the National Organization or Global Women’s March.

    1. This year, the Women’s March is facing divisive allegations that begin in the Kremlin, pass through the bowels of right wing media, and somehow end up in the Washington Post.

      The March is too White.
      Even if this allegation is true, white people marching for human rights is a good thing. That’s not an excuse to stay home.
      The organizers won’t denounce Louis Farrakhan.

      This is typical Kremlin style propaganda. It frames a complex question as black and white.

      But there is another problem: Louis Farrakhan is 85 years old and is not speaking at or attending the Women’s March. So why is he an issue?

      I have friends who attended Farrakhan’s 1995 Million Man March who say it
      transformed their lives and they know I’m Jewish.

      I despise Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism but respect what he did for his community.

      I’m doing what I can as a citizen to promote this year’s Women’s March because it’s crucial for us to show up.

  1. This is wonderful, Rob. The first poster is beautiful.
    If you go to the one in SF, I hope you take lots of pictures.
    More bad weather on the way here for the weekend.
    Anyhow, I’m sharing this everywhere. Hugs on the wing.
