We had a wonderful day yesterday!

We danced to an amazing band, listened to great speeches, including the keynote speech from Indivisible Ventura Co-Director Veronica James, talked and marched with fellow resistors and filled up our souls again on the strength and resilience we need as we prepare for the 2018 elections.

Both Saturday and Sunday this weekend, Ventura County is sponsoring resistance activities on the anniversary of the first Women’s March, the largest collective protest march in US history. 

Come make history again and join in with your fellow resistors and fill up on the strength and resilience we need as we prepare for the 2018 elections. If you missed the last march, come join with us now.

Ventura County

Come to your local Ventura County event! It’s a march, it’s a rally, it’s fun! Lots of community organizers to talk to and learn about opportunities to become involved. Bring your family-friendly signs that express our political strength and committment to creating a world that stands up not only for women’s rights but also for justice for all. You don’t have to be part of the planning committee to help out at this event. You can sign up to work a shift during, before, or after the rally and still participate in the march itself. If you would like to help/volunteer at the event, there are still volunteer slots to fill at this  link.
