The day after the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, a "Community Action Rally" will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, at Courthouse Square, 2200 Broadway in Redwood City.
Joan Baez is expected to perform and Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Menlo Park, and state Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, are among the expected speakers.
The rally, due to run about 90 minutes, will be a "nonpartisan, family-friendly event" that is "inspired by and held in solidarity with" Saturday's Women's March on Washington, organizers said. It will be held rain or shine.
Speakers will discuss ways to get involved in community action in the areas of the environment, education, health care, religious and cultural tolerance, LGBTQ+ rights, immigrant rights and "breaking the glass ceiling," organizers said.
"The purpose of the rally is to give the citizens of San Mateo County an opportunity to affirm our community values," said Joan Dentler, a member of the organizing committee.
