International Women’s Day in Santa Barbara

Downtown Rally Set for March 10

Santa Barbara joins the International Women’s Day rallies that have been ongoing worldwide all week — the official day falls on March 8 — with a rally and march on Saturday, March 10.

The rally begins at 11:30 a.m. at De la Guerra Plaza; the march heads out at noon.

A companion event takes place the evening of Thursday, March 8. A short documentary on human trafficking presented by Safe at Home will screen at 6:30 p.m. at Impact Hub (1117 State St.) with a discussion to follow. With information booths, food, and drink, the event runs from 6-8:30 p.m.
