South Bay Women’s March 2018
meets at King Harbor on Jan. 20
A Family Friendly March has been organized for Women’s March Anniversary weekend, January 20, at Redondo Beach’s King Harbor. The Progressive Parents of the South Bay will meet in front of Ruby’s Diner, 245 N. Harbor Drive, at 10 a.m.
The previous iteration of the South Bay Women’s March, coinciding with other national Women’s Marches across the country on Jan. 21 last year, drew over 1,800 participants marching for many reasons, from health care to women’s rights, to general hope in the face of what was then considered an uncertain future under the Trump administration.
“I feel it’s my duty as a woman and my duty as a citizen to demonstrate, and I am patriotic,” Redondo Beach resident Melanie Cohen said during last year’s march.
