“Women’s March Foundation is proud to welcome a dynamic and powerful group of speakers and performers to Women’s March LA 2020,” said Emiliana Guereca, president of Women’s March Foundation. “We commend them for using their platforms in support of women’s rights, especially during this very important election year.” 

The 4th annual Women’s March LA will begin with a rally at 9 a.m. and march at 10 a.m. from Pershing Square to Los Angeles City Hall. First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom will open the program at City Hall featuring speeches and performances from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

In the 2018 midterm election, a record-breaking 103 women were elected to Congress and have risen to assert powerful and courageous leadership in every area from the economy to foreign policy to government accountability. Women’s March LA 2020 will celebrate these accomplishments, raise awareness of the important work done by community organizations throughout the year registering and educating voters, mobilizing communities, equipping youth for civic engagement and empowering women to run for office.

On January 21, 2017, the Women’s March was the largest single-day protest in U.S. history with over seven million women and allies marching throughout the world. More than one million of those marching for gender justice and equality marched in Los Angeles. Women’s March Foundation grew from that initial moment and has organized a march for women’s rights in LA each year since, with over 2.2 million marchers taking part.

Women’s March Foundation is proud to partner with Lyft, MARK, and SameSide to present Women’s March LA 2020.

Using innovative Augmented Reality (AR) technology, the new MARK app beta launch will allow attendees of Women’s March LA 2020 to share and discover virtual artwork created by five renowned female artists from around the globe.

The MARK app will donate up to $100 per person and up to $300,000 total to the Women’s March Foundation on behalf of supporters who help spread the word. MARK is available for download at www.Mark.app

Women’s March LA is an inclusive, non-partisan march, and everyone who supports women’s rights is welcome.
