The march in Long Beach was one of hundreds that took place in Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and across the nation.
On Saturday Oct. 2 Crockett and hundreds of others are expected to march through Long Beach in hopes of spurring action at the federal level to ensure that there is safe access to abortions for all women and to signal that “attacks on reproductive rights will not be tolerated,” Crockett said.
In addition to the Long Beach march at noon at Pine Avenue and Ocean Boulevard, similar gatherings are scheduled in Los Angeles, Pasadena, Torrance and Laguna Niguel.
Thousands of people took to the streets of Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and other cities across California on Saturday for the third annual Women’s March.
The third annual Women’s March will take place in Downtown LA on Saturday, Jan. 19.
