Women’s March Modesto


MODESTO, CA – January 10, 2020 – Women’s March Modesto has announced their speaker line-up and schedule for our local march, rally and unity gathering with this year’s theme “Women Rising.” Make plans to join and activate our community! 

On January 21st of 2017, millions of women and allies around the world took to the streets to make themselves seen and heard, demonstrating to advance women’s human rights. Now, nearly three years later, the Women’s March movement has announced that on January 18, 2020, feminists and women’s human rights defenders will march yet again in the 4th Annual Global Women’s March.

“The mission of the Women’s March Modesto is to harness the voting power of women along with their allies and supporters in our communities to create transformative social change” states Patty Hughes, Women’s March Modesto, Chairwoman.

Women’s March is a non-partisan female-led movement providing intersectional education on a range of issues and creating entry points for new grassroots activists & organizers to engage with and in their local communities through training, outreach programs, and events. We focused on voter education, voter outreach, and voter empowerment, all encompassed in the message for this year… ‘Women Rising’.

Women’s March Modesto is a movement to unify and empower those who stand for women’s rights, human rights, civil liberties, and social justice for all.

The Women’s March events are non-partisan and peaceful and will give people the opportunity to unite in every state and major metropolitan area and stand in solidarity for the American values we represent.
