We know there have been questions about the leadership of the National Women's March. The OC Women's March is not part of the National March organization and those questions are answered below.

Please reply to this email or call me at 714-293-2181 if you have any questions.

Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,



Because of the controversy with the National Women's March, the OC Women's March is a separate entity and has released the following statement:

"The Orange County Women's March is a local, volunteer-driven, grassroots coalition of individuals and organizations dedicated to promoting inclusivity and equity in our collective efforts to advance the status of women and women's issues. Our coalition is distinctly independent of Women's March, Inc. a national organization. The Orange County Women's March does not share any leadership, decision-marking input, or financial connection to Women's March, Inc, and we independently raise our own funds to present our local Orange County Women's March.

The Orange County Women's March stands against hate in all forms. We denounce any statements against the Jewish and LGBTQIA+ communities and will continue to take action to promote intersectionality and equity as we work toward our vision of restoring dignity, sharing humanity, and promoting inclusivity and justice for all.

We firmly believe that women must stand in solidarity with all marginalized communities and ask those communities to stand together with us against hate and oppression in all forms and at all levels. we look forward to marching with you in downtown Santa Ana on Saturday, January 19, 2019.



Happy New Year!
