Our goal is to continue the momentum of the Women's March while raising money for 7 charities related to human rights/liberties: women's health/reproductive, LGBTQ, immigrant, civil & civil liberty charities. We are on pace to have tens of thousands of participants in 306 U.S. cities, including Santa Cruz. 100% of the net proceeds are going to the seven benefiting charities.
