From Website:

On January 20th we will march again, this time for our voices and votes to be heard!  This peaceful demonstration will bring attention to the 2018 elections, magnifying the work being done by community organizations to turn out the vote!

First we MARCH, then we VOTE!

For their support, we thank the Kumeyaay people on whose land we march.

On January 20, 2018, we will unite in San Diego to reaffirm our commitment to building a positive and just future for all, and to celebrate the spirit of resistance efforts over the past year.

Our march theme, Hear Our Vote, is designed to engage and empower voters to support women’s rights, human rights, social and environmental justice, and to encourage participation in 2018 midterm elections.

The San Diego march will be one of many worldwide events honoring the movement that brought out 5 million marchers on January 21, 2017, in what is considered the largest single-day demonstration in U.S. history.

4. Buy a ticket from Rally Bus.  As long as 30 or more people sign-up for a bus, it will run.  Prices start at $30 round trip.  Rally Bus organizes buses based on demand, so spread the word and help get those seats filled!
