On January 19th, San Diego held its third annual Women’s March. Women and men alike floked from all over San Diego to come and participate. Around 10 a.m. the event was started off with a prayer from Kumeyaay Elder Virginia Christman. After, came a select group of keynote speakers including Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, Assemblyman Todd Gloria, and San Diego City Attorney Mara Elliot, just to name a few. They spoke passionately on the topics of LGBTQ rights, climate change, sexism, racism, and the humanitarian crisis at the border. A few, like Tasha Williamson, announced their candidacy for mayor of San Diego in the year 2020. All were met with applause and cheering from the crowd. Overall, the atmosphere of this event was fierce yet uplifting to so many who have difficulty finding a voice. Through the women’s march people were able to come out from all over the world and show their true zeal because, in the end, that is what democracy is all about. Freedom of speech.
