Who is WMLA Foundation?
Women’s March LA Foundation is a women-led non-profit 501c3 organization created in 2016 by the producers of the historic Women’s March LA. Our mission is to bring attention to the struggles of marginalized communities and all attacks on human rights. At Women's March LA Foundation we recognize that there is no true peace, freedom or inclusion without equity for all, and through education, canvassing, social media, and events, we activate our collective political power to bring about lasting social change.
What are we marching for?
Last year our message was “Hear our Voice” this year we have a defined call-to-action with “Hear our Vote”! In this crucial midterm election year, our collective voices can change the narrative by bringing out the vote in record numbers! Together we can bring #PowertothePolls
Is this a protest?
This is a Pro Peace, Pro Inclusivity Event focused on marginalized voices and the power of voting. Part of our resistance is focusing on how we will use our vote to create the future we want. We respectfully ask that “anti” sentiments are not the focus of this event. This does not mean that we don’t acknowledge the need or desire to feel anger and to protest. However, this is not the focus of this event. Thank you for your understanding.
