Is there a local March for Women's Lives today?

I heard about a march today at 9:00 AM at Waterfront Park on KBOO. This isn't on their calendar. Does anyone know about a local gathering or march today?

ensure that we can do everything in our power to protect our right to

Co-sponsoring organizations function as March ambassadors,
helping spread the word and mobilizing their membership and
communities into delegations. Co-sponsors are encouraged - but not

organizations agree not to engage in partisan electoral activity
in connection with the March.

wheelchair accessible. ASL interpreters will be available for the hearing
impaired. Delegation leaders should use the online form to indicate the
number of people that require seating. People not marching with an
official delegation should contact the March Office to reserve seats.
