Last year hundreds of thousands of Angelenos gathered in Pershing Square for Women's March LA, one of numerous marches held throughout the US and the world. The march is being held again this year to bring attention to the struggles of marginalized communities and all attacks on human rights. This is an inclusive, non-partisan march, and everyone who supports women’s rights is welcome.
The event is open to all (not just women!) Participants gather in the spirit of democracy and stand together in support of human rights, civil liberties, tolerance of diversity, and compassion for our shared humanity.
There is no cost to attend the event.

The march begins at Pershing Square and ends at Grand Park; an event is held in the park until approximately 2pm with entertainment, speakers, informational booths, and food trucks.
Participants are advised to use public transportation/ ride sharing services for transportation to the march, in anticipation of high congestion and street closures in the Downtown LA area.
