From WMSD:

Our marchers continue to make a difference.

2020 Elections…a critical time, and Women’s March San Diego marchers are seen, heard, and powerful!

We march this coming January 18, 2020 as we continue to raise our voices in support of our Unity Principles (see below). We hope you will join us! Our developing program and march notes are below.

4th Annual March Program

This year’s program promises to be one focused on inspiration, invigoration, and ACTION. We can’t wait to see you at the 2020 San Diego Women’s March!

Note from WMSD:

About this year’s program – Following last year’s March, we received important feedback from our community partners and our marchers. And we listened. You said: There were too many speakers; the program was just too long! We answered: Let’s shorten it up! This year’s program will feature only eight speakers, each whose body of work represents one of our eight Unity Principles.

You said: I want an opportunity to provide input on the March speakers. We answered: Let’s select the speakers from an open nomination process that included our community partners and the public at large. Nearly 50 compelling nominations were made, and from them our 2020 speakers were selected.

Unity Principles


We believe Civil Rights are our birthright, including voting rights, freedom to worship without fear of intimidation or harassment, freedom of speech, and protections for all citizens regardless of race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age or disability. We believe it is time for an all-inclusive Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

We acknowledge and condemn antisemitism and all forms of religion-based hate. We stand firm in our rejection of language or actions from any person or group that target, disparage, denigrate, threaten or harm another person or group.


We believe that all women’s issues are issues faced by women with disabilities and Deaf women. As mothers, sisters, daughters, and contributing members of this great nation, we seek to break barriers to access, inclusion, independence, and the full enjoyment of citizenship at home and around the world. We strive to be fully included in and contribute to all aspects of American life, economy, and culture.


Women deserve to live full and healthy lives, free of all forms of violence against our bodies. We believe in accountability and justice in cases of police brutality and ending racial profiling and targeting of communities of color. It is our moral imperative to dismantle the gender and racial inequities within the criminal justice system.


We believe that every person and every community in our nation has the right to clean water, clean air, and access to and enjoyment of public lands. We believe that our environment and our climate must be protected, and that our land and natural resources cannot be exploited for corporate gain or greed – especially at the risk of public safety and health.


Rooted in the promise of America’s call for huddled masses yearning to breathe free, we believe in immigrant and refugee rights regardless of status or country of origin.  We believe migration is a human right and that no human being is illegal.


We firmly declare that LGBTQIA Rights are Human Rights and that it is our obligation to uplift, expand and protect the rights of our gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans or gender non-conforming brothers, sisters and siblings. We must have the power to control our bodies and be free from gender norms, expectations and stereotypes.


We believe in Reproductive Freedom. We do not accept any federal, state or local rollbacks, cuts or restrictions on our ability to access quality reproductive healthcare services, birth control, HIV/AIDS care and prevention, or medically accurate sexuality education. This means open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people, regardless of income, location or education.


We believe in an economy powered by transparency, accountability, security and equity. All women should be paid equitably, with access to affordable childcare, sick days, healthcare, paid family leave, and healthy work environments. All workers – including domestic and farm workers, undocumented and migrant workers – must have the right to organize and fight for a living minimum wage.
