Feminist leaders participate in International Women’s Day event
With the theme “Value Women’s Lives, Our Children, Our Work, Our Planet: End War, Racism & Poverty!”, participants will gather for the annual International Women’s Day Event on Saturday, March 7, starting at noon at 800 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., as the corner of South Hoover Street.
Part of the International Women’s Strike taking place in several countries around the world, the event will also honor and demand justice for the South L.A. black women serial murder victims and missing and murdered Indigenous women.
The event will also feature Dolores Huerta, long-time labor and women’s rights leader, who will present the second annual Woman Warrior Award, as well as speakers, a feminism for the 99% dance party, street art, music, healing and action areas, and an interactive performance piece, an original that draws inspiration from “El violador en tu camino” and the Poor People’s Campaign song “I’m Gonna Rise Up.”
Attendees are encouraged to wear red and bring gently used clothing to help raise funds to assist migrants stuck at the US/Mexico border.
