Remember how uplifting it was to march through Oakland with tens of thousands of like-minded people of all ages last January?
This coming Saturday we get to do it again!
Team Jovanka will join the Oakland Women’s March on Saturday, January 20th. We'll be talking to marchers about how to turn their passion into action by electing our corporate-free candidate Jovanka Beckles to the California State Assembly.
We’ll meet up in the first two cars of the Warm Springs BART train leaving Richmond at 8:15 and pick up passengers on the way to the Lake Merritt station. Note these times:
- Richmond: 8:15am
- El Cerrito Del Norte: 8:19am
- El Cerrito Plaza: 8:22am
- North Berkeley: 8:26am
- Downtown Berkeley: 8:28am
- Ashby: 8:30am
- MacArthur: 8:35am
The march is scheduled to begin at 10:00am at the Lake Merritt Amphitheater. If you arrive on a later train, look for our Jovanka banner. We’ll be wearing our blue and green Jovanka t-shirts. Wear a royal blue shirt, and we’ll know you’re marching with the team.
Please see the Oakland Women’s March website page for suggestions and the route: womensmarchoakland.org/about-the-march.
*Important Tip: Buy your round-trip BART ticket before the 20th.*
If you are interested in leafleting at the rally at Frank Ogawa Plaza or other ways of participating, let our Field Director Kabir Kapur know by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you there!
