Join us as we kick off our League of Women Voters Diablo Valley get-out the-vote activities during the upcoming Contra Costa County Women’s March on January 18th at Walnut Creek Civic Park! Check out volunteer needs below, and sign up!

This year’s Women’s March theme is, “Voting Is Our Superpower” and we’re proud to have two booths at the March as well as activities in the gazebo. We have great activities planned throughout the March and would love to see you there:

9:30 a.m. #WhyIVote_LWVDV

10:30 a.m. Rally

11:15 a.m. March starts

Come down and check out our booths -- and the gazebo! -- and see what we’re up to for our 2020 get-out-the-vote and 100th Year Anniversary activities:

#WhyIVote_LWVDV  Participate in our #WhyIVote campaign by stepping into our photo booth and sharing why you vote. Invite your family and friends to share as well! We’re asking those in attendance at the rally and march to share their #WhyIVote message on social media using our #WhyIVote_LWVDV hashtag. Help us spread the word!

Take a selfie with suffragist Margaret Ruth*  LWVDV will have a life-size mannequin of suffragist Margaret Ruth. This is an opportunity to celebrate our 100th anniversary as LWV and the 19th amendment passage. Come to the gazebo and take a picture and share it with your family and friends!

The Women’s March will happen rain or shine!  We’re looking forward to a great turnout and seeing you at the Women’s March, Saturday, January 18th.
