Dozens gather for car caravan, virtual Women’s March in Sacramento – KCRA Sacramento


The pandemic forced the Women’s March Sacramento to look a little different this year. Participants were invited to join a car caravan around the state Capitol and listen to speakers virtually. A permit for an in-person rally was denied, but organizers say now is not the time for complacency.“Just because there’s a new presidential administration, that doesn’t mean women have equity. And it doesn’t mean that we have equal pay. And it doesn’t mean that we have racial justice for all. And it doesn’t mean Indigenous have their rights. Or climate justice,” said Scarlette Bustos with Women’s March Sacramento.”All of those things are women’s issues. And so we have speakers who are leaders in the Sacramento and surrounding communities and they are giving calls to action,” she said.Leaders of the event posted those speeches on their Facebook page Women’s March Sacramento.
