Dozens gather in a caravan, a virtual women’s rally in Sacramento

The pandemic forced the Sacramento women’s march to look a little different this year. Participants are invited to join a caravan around the state Capitol and listen to speakers virtually. A permit for personal demonstrations has been denied, but organizers say now is not the time for complacency. “Just because there is a new presidential administration, it doesn’t mean women have equality. It doesn’t mean that we have equal wages. It doesn’t mean we have racial justice for everyone. It doesn’t mean that indigenous people have their rights.” Scarlett Bustos of Women’s Marsh Sacramento said: “Or climate justice.” “All of these things concern women. And so we have speakers who are leaders in Sacramento and surrounding communities and they are issuing calls to action. ”Event leaders posted these speeches on their Facebook Women’s March Sacramento page.

The pandemic forced the Sacramento women’s march to look a little different this year.

Participants are invited to join a caravan around the state Capitol and listen to speakers virtually.

Permission to demonstrate in person was denied, but organizers say now is not a time for complacency.

Just because there is a new presidential administration, it does not mean that women enjoy equality. This does not mean that we have equal wages. This does not mean that we have racial justice for all. This does not mean that the indigenous people have their rights. “Or Climate Justice,” said Scarlett Bustos of Women’s Marsh Sacramento.

“All of these things are about women’s issues. And so we have speakers who are leaders in Sacramento and the surrounding community and they are calling out calls to action,” she said.
