Please join Parkinson’s Women Support in San Francisco on Saturday, January 21 to march with the Women’s March, a national movement to unify and empower everyone who stands for human rights, civil liberties, and social justice for all. The Women’s March is standing together in solidarity for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.
Members of Parkinson’s Women Support (PWS) will march to advocate for Parkinson’s research, FDA approval of new therapies, better access to health care, support services, and affordable medications to improve the quality of life for people with Parkinson’s disease.
The San Francisco rally with speakers, arts and music is from 4 – 6PM at the Civic Center. At 6PM a candlelight march takes place from Market St. to Justin Herman Plaza.
Time of Rally: 4 – 6PM
Time of March: 6 – 9PM
Starting Location: Civic Center, San Francisco, CA 94102 (off Van Ness, north of Market)
