Families Belong Together March - San Diego

Please join WMSD in solidarity with San Diego Indivisible.

Families Belong Together opposes the cruel, inhumane and unjustified separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border with Mexico and at other ports of entry into the U.S. We protest the conditions in which these children are kept. We protest the irreversible trauma that has already been perpetrated on these children and their parents for the crime of seeking a better life.

To separate immigrant families, victims of violence, hunger and poverty, is to re-violate them. Children as young as 18 months are torn from their mother’s arms by the U.S. government. This is violent abuse. These families are victimized again by the government to which they turn for help. Families Belong Together opposes the inhumane policies of the Trump Administration, Border Patrol, and I.C.E. and calls for immediate reform.


💛


Familias Unidas, No Divididas echaza la separación cruel, inhumana e injustificada de niños de sus padres a lo largo de la frontera de los Estados Unidos con México y en otros puertos de entrada a los EE. UU. Protestamos por las condiciones en las que se mantienen a estos niños. Protestamos contra el trauma irreversible que ya se ha perpetrado contra estos niños y sus padres por el delito de buscar una vida mejor.

Separar a las familias inmigrantes, familias víctima de la violencia, el hambre y la pobreza es volver a violentarlas. El gobierno de los Estados Unidos separa a niños de tan solo 18 meses de los brazos de sus madres. Esto es abuso. Estas familias son nuevamente victimizadas por el gobierno al que acuden en busca de ayuda. Familias Unidas, No Divididas se opone a las políticas inhumanas de la administración de Donald Trump, Protección Fronteriza y I.C.E. y pide una reforma inmediata.

March for Our Lives San Diego

Women's March San Diego has heard the call from our kids, the survivors of the school shooting in Florida who are calling for a march on Washington, and across the country to demand action on gun control.

Thoughts and prayers are not enough to honor the victims of gun violence. What we need now is action.

On March 24, 2018, students will rally in Washington D.C and in local communities across the country to demand action from our leaders. Join WMSD as we support our students in the March For Our Lives, as we fight for an America that is free from gun violence.

March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar.

The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues. No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country.

Please mark your calendars and plan to join us in solidarity as we support the students on this effort. Details to include location and time are TBD.

San Diego Candlelight Vigil for Charlottesville

  • San Diego County Administration Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

There has never been a clearer sign that we must continue what we started with the Women's March than what happened in Charlottesville. The line has been jackhammered into the concrete. Women's March San Diego is standing in solidarity with Together We Will: Indivisible San Diego for Charlottesville. Join us. Condemn disgusting white supremacy and neo-Nazism. Honor those who fight against. BRING SIGNS AND CANDLES. We are asking people to promote good relations between all peoples. Our strategy is to use non-violence to counter the message of hate groups and to publicly express our support for the victims of crime in Charlottesville. Please be part of our strength! We call for a strong and decisive stand against racism, oppression, and white supremacy in all its forms. The violence we have witnessed in the past 48 hours in the small college town of Charlottesville, VA is simply another chapter in a long legacy of hate in America. With one voice, we demand it to stop! 

PLEASE WEAR YOUR WOMEN'S MARCH TSHIRTS IF YOU HAVE ONE!

SDPD will be there to support our vigil!

Impeachment March - San Diego

On Sunday, July 2nd, we march to demand Congress DO THEIR JOB and remove Trump from The White House.

Donald Trump’s extreme disregard for the Constitution is a profound subversion of the Office of the President. We demand that Congress does its job and commences with impeachment proceedings immediately.  We demand that Congress stop enabling President Trump through an embarrassing and potentially catastrophic charade of normalcy.

TAKE ACTION: Save the ACA

Republican senators say their phones aren’t ringing to save the ACA, so here’s the contact list:

As Republicans plan to vote on a health care bill that they won’t even allow the public to see, one that reportedly will take away pre-existing condition protections for tens of millions of Americans, there are reports they feel emboldened to do so now because calls to the Senate regarding the ACA and the AHCA have dwindled to normal call levels, after the unprecedented deluge of calls around Trump’s inauguration. 

Every single senator has a legislative assistant dedicated to health care. It is time for all hands on deck. These legislative assistants need to hear directly from you. Be precise, be polite, make your voice heard.

May Day March

Thank you to everyone who supported this meaningful event!  There will be more opportunities to participate in events in the future.  In the meantime, you can continue to make a difference by encouraging people to register to vote:

ABOUT THE MAY DAY MARCH

A Day Without a Worker. A Day Without a Woman. A Day Without an Immigrant.

This march is in support of working families, women and immigrants.  In peaceful resistance, the march will begin at the Federal Building and will end in Chicano Park (~2.8 miles). 

The mission is to advance the fight for a fair and just economy. We will defend our communities until every child gets a good public education, every family has quality healthcare and childcare, and every senior can retire in dignity. We will advance justice until every woman and girl is safe, until immigrant families do not fear the violence of deportation, until black people can walk down the street without fear of police terror, and until working full-time is enough for a family to live out of poverty.

"The Janitors and students at City College are going to strike and march, because our freedoms, dignity and human rights are not being respected."  - Geno A., May Day March Organizer

San Diego Tax March

Join thousands of San Diegans on Saturday, April 15th, to protest Donald Trump and his family's numerous conflicts-of-interest. As we protest Trump, we also acknowledge that Trump's conflicts are a symptom of a deeper problem in our tax structure, and the structure of our economy as-a-whole; that ultra-wealthy and profitable corporations manipulate our tax structure and the gloabal financial markets to get out of paying taxes, and keep most of their profits for themselves or their wealthy investors. This design-flaw in our economy results in wealth for the richest 1% , and hardship and inequality for the remaining 99%. This status quo is no longer acceptable.

The Ides of Trump

A new movement is aiming to mail at least 1 million postcards to President Donald Trump on Wednesday, March 15—historically dubbed "the Ides of March" and known as the day Julius Caesar was assassinated—to show "the man, the media, and the politicians how vast our numbers are...to make it irrefutable that the president's claim of wide support is a farce."

"He may draw a big crowd with empty promises, but the crowd of those that oppose his agenda is exponentially larger. And we will show up to protest, to vote, and to be heard. Again and again and again," the group, which calls itself the Ides of Trump, explained on its website and Facebook page.

The group outlines five steps to participate:

Write one postcard. Write a dozen! Create your own cards, buy them, share them, it doesn't matter as long as you write #TheIdes or #TheIdesOfTrump on them somewhere.
 Take a picture of your cards and post them on social media (tagged with #TheIdesOfTrump or #TheIdes, please). This will help us verify our numbers.


Spread the word! Everyone on Earth can let Washington know their opinion of the President. They can't build a wall high enough to stop the mail.

Then, on March 15th, mail your cards to:
The President (for now)  
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
NW Washington, DC 20500
