Women’s March LA

The march is open to everyone who stands for human rights, civil liberties, and compassion for our shared humanity.

We stand together in solidarity for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.

In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.


Getting to Women’s March LA:

We highly recommend using public transportation/ ride sharing services for transportation to the march, as there will be high congestion and street closures in the Downtown LA area.

Ride the Red Line toward downtown Los Angeles and exit Pershing Square (5th Street). For alternate routes, visit MTA.

Drive the 110 Freeway toward Downtown Los Angeles and exit 6th Street.

From City Hall ride DASH “B” toward the Financial District and exit Olive at 6th Street. From the Garland Building ride DASH “E,” exit Olive at 7th Street, and walk north one block. For alternate routes, visit LADOT.
*Yes, the DASH B will be running on Saturday, January 21.

Chartered buses may drop off at the corner of 5th & Olive. Olive will be closed between 5th & 6th; event staff will be there to facilitate unloading. Buses are responsible for finding their own parking during the day.

Parking under Pershing Square will be available all day; many public lots in the surrounding areas will also be open to the public and charge anywhere from $10-$30.

We will march rain or shine! Bring your rain ponchos just in case.

Here is a review of the FAQ.
You can also view all this information on the website.

Do I need a ticket to attend?
No. All the marches should be free and public. If someone asks you to buy a ticket, don’t do it! We do have an Eventbrite page, but we are using this to spread the word, it is not necessary to register!
Is this event rain or shine?
Yes! We will be marching either way, no matter what mother nature decides to do!
Are backpacks allowed?
Yes. But please be aware that you must be responsible for all your belongings throughout the day.
Will you be releasing the march route?
We have been working diligently with LAPD to ensure a safe event for all. To err on the side of caution, we will not be releasing an exact map, but please know that we will be starting at Pershing Square and marching to City Hall. The march is roughly 1 mile from Pershing Square to City Hall, then back to Pershing Square, for a total of about 2 miles.
What about speakers for the day?
Speakers will begin at 9am at Pershing Square, up until we begin marching at 10am. Once we arrive at City Hall, we will have more speakers, and the day will be filled with words from great voices, community leaders, and politicians alike. Vendor booths from local organizations will be on-site, along with food trucks.
Are restrooms and water available?
Yes, we will have both along the march route, as well as at the starting and finishing points.
ADA information?
Women’s March Los Angeles is committed to the inclusion of the disability community. WMLA worked with the Westside Center for Independent Living (WCIL) to improve accessibility and create a more positive experience for disabled marchers.
Accessible drop-off/pick-up points at both stages.
Pershing Square drop-off: Hill St between 5th & 6th; City Hall drop-off 1st & Spring
Accessible porta-potties are available along the march route and the stages.
EMT tents will be available with water and emergency medical support.
Two ADA tents will be available with WCIL volunteer peer counselors, snacks, and mylar blankets.
All stages feature reserved space for disabled marchers and seating is available upon request from any volunteer.
ASL interpreters will be available at all stages throughout the program.
All stages will have open captions.
4 Golf carts will be available for marchers with mobility disabilities to facilitate movement between stages and to the vendor tents.
The dog park at Pershing Square will serve as a “service animal relief area.”
Can I bring my own signs? Can they be on sticks?
Yes, you may bring your own signs and they may have sticks, but they need to adhere to the guidelines outlined here:
What is the status with permits?
We have obtained all necessary permits for this event in Los Angeles, and have been working in conjunction with the LAPD and City of LA to make this a peaceful event for all. This is the official Women’s March of Los Angeles.
What about safety and security?
We are taking health and safety very seriously. There will be measures in place for this.
Is it just for women only? What about my kids?
No. The march is open to everyone who stands for human rights, civil liberties, tolerance of diversity, and compassion for our shared humanity. We welcome those of all ages, as this day is about unity, celebration of human rights, self respect and dignity.
Is anyone coordinating travel to DC?
If it’s hard for you to get to DC, consider attending a local march. We are not fundraising at this time to sponsor travel to DC for individuals.
Is this a protest, march, or rally?
This is not a protest. The Women’s March is a celebration of human rights. In some cases, there will be a march and rally, but it depends on the event and what organizers have planned.
I’m organizing a bus for my group to attend the march- how do we coordinate pick/up drop off?
Please contact us directly so we can work with you to coordinate the arrival/ departure of your transportation.
We are pleased to announce our schedule on our website.

The Women's March - Los Angeles is part of a national movement to unify and empower everyone who stands for women's rights, human rights, civil liberties, and social justice for all. This is a non-partisan and peaceful event. People will unite locally and nationally in every state and major metropolitan area to stand with us in solidarity for the American values we represent.
The Women's March - Los Angeles is not just for women but welcomes all people to join us as we unite locally and nationally. We seek to unify and empower everyone who stands for women's rights, human rights, civil liberties, and social justice for all.
