10am to 12pm – Pre-March Meet-up at ERA
Our office is right at the edge of the rally site in Civic Center: 1170 Market Street, Suite 700.
Get your ERA march t-shirt or button. We’ll have drinks and snacks — and sign making materials available so you can tell the world why you’re marching.

We’ll have an ERA group listening in to the rally at the corner of Larkin and Grove. Look for us in ERA shirts and with the ERA banner.
If you prefer to stay inside during the rally, or can’t make it to the Pre-March Meet-Up before 12 noon, don’t worry! Some ERA staff will be staying at the ERA office to greet new guests and enjoy any the company of marchers who are still making posters.
12:45pm to 1pm – Line up w/ ERA at Larkin and Grove
