It was a beautiful, sunny LA day. A great day for a rally as Strategy Center members joined with over 50 organizations and over 2,000 people as they took over the streets to honor and support women leaders and women’s liberation.
If we are really serious about honoring International Working Women’s Day we should start here to eradicate violence against women. From the assault on our communities, to traffickers, to violence in ICE detention centers, and in the army and by the army, there is a legacy of violence against women.
On Sunday, March 8th, for the better part of the day, we let our voices be heard in the streets as we marched in unity, our route taking us from the steps of City Hall, to the LAPD HQ, the ICE Detention Center, and ending with a rally in Mariachi Plaza.
