Women’s March Los Angeles

On Saturday, January 20th, 2018, expect anywhere between 750,000 to 1 million participants attending the Women’s March in DTLA.

In 2017, over 750,00 marchers took to the streets of Downtown Los Angeles with the message of “Hear Our Voice.”  This years message is “PowerToThePolls,” and “HearOurVote.”

Per the official website at WomensMarchLA, this is not a protest.  It’s open to all all genders, orientations and identifications.  Their goal is diversity and inclusion.  The march will focus on workers’ rights, civil rights, disability rights, LGBTQIA rights, immigrant rights and reproductive rights.  The event will start at Pershing Square at 830am, and will end at Grand Park near City Hall at 10AM.  Festivities will continue through at least 3PM.  Guests speakers and supporters include Sopia Bush, Scarlett Johansson, Chloe Bennet, Paris Jackson, Nicole Brown, Megan Mullally, Olivia Munn, Nicole Richie, and Alfre Woodard.  Performances by the Gay Men’s Chorus and Melissa Etheridge are also expected to perform.

If planning on attending this event, the underground subway is the suggested transportation to Downtown LA, as well as ridesharing.  Be prepared for long lines regardless. Some of our Glitterati Tours team went last year and the subway at Hollywood and Vine had a line several hundred deep.  This particular Metro line starts in North Hollywood and was jam-packed with participants, leaving very few add-ons at stations throughout Hollywood.  Driving there isn’t much better, unless you plan to park a bit away and walk to the event.

Whether one agrees with the message(s) by this march or not, we strongly support our local sisters and brothers in their quest for change in this divisive time.  No red or blue. No political sides taken. This is a peaceful march with a million voices needing to be heard on all topics relating to life in our great country. We’re all in this together, and America is home to many, many wonderful people, and we are a true melting pot of diversity, regardless of what you may hear.
