TBA Million Woman's March in Oakland.

Women's March - Oakland

Details: To Be Announced

The Women's March on 21 January is a grassroots-organized, inclusive, peaceful, and non-partisan event for women, men and children.

While the main event will occur in Washington D.C., there will be several sister marches (such as the one in Oakland) on that day throughout the nation. People all over the U.S. will come together to send a bold message to our administration and the world: women's rights are human rights.

The LWVA will organize a group to participate in the Oakland march; contact Georgia if interested. t.derr@comcast.net

We meet the 4th Monday of each month (except holidays) in the back room of Applebee's restaurant in Southshore. We read non-fiction books, preferably paperbacks, chosen by the group upon the recommendation of one of us who has read the book. Discussion is lively, interesting, and challenging.

Anyone thinking of becoming a member and who has read the book is invited to attend.
