Women's March on Chico | Jan 20

date: Jan 20
time: 10:00am-3:30pm
location: Downtown Chico Plaza

WOMEN'S MARCH ON CHICO | SATURDAY JANUARY 20th, 2018

On January 20, 2018 the Women’s March on Chico will unite again along with multiple other marches nationally to reaffirm our commitment to building a positive and just future for all, and to celebrate inspiring resistance efforts over the last year.
This rally is a place to engage and empower all people to support Women’s Rights, Human Rights, Civil Rights, Indigenous People’s Rights, Women of Color, Disability Rights, Women’s Healthcare, Immigrant Rights, Interfaith Unity, LGBTQIAA2S+ and Social Justice and Environmental Justice. Our feminism must be intersectional and inclusive, and we will continue to organize as such.

THEY HEARD OUR VOICE, NOW THEY WILL #HEAROURVOTE
The March will be one of many worldwide events honoring the movement that first brought out over 5 million marchers on January 21, 2017, in what is considered the largest single-day demonstration in U.S. history. Locally we also saw thousands in the largest march Chico has ever held. We look forward to sharing this experience again and engaging our community even further.
We want to encourage participation in 2018 midterm elections and encourage people to organize locally, register to vote, vote, women run for office (especially Women of Color and marginalized people), and elect Progressive Women & Allies.
First we Marched, and Now we Run!

We also want to encourage support of ongoing local grassroots efforts addressing and meeting crucial needs such as housing, childcare, shelter, food security, community safety, racial justice, cultural equity, mutual aid, arts and education, honoring Indigenous People’s relationship to their Land and Water, and for affordable and compassionate healthcare access for all.
We will continue to work towards a more just local network to build, sustain and grow vibrant communities in unity together.

Join us at Chico City Plaza Saturday January 20th, 2018!
10:00am Pre-March Gathering
10:30am March on Chico
12:00pm Rally with Music, Art, Speakers and Booths until 3:30pm

HEAR OUR VOICE.
This is not an anti-movement; this is an opportunity for people to come together to stand for love, respect, and inclusion.
This is an INCLUSIVE march, and EVERYONE who supports women's rights are welcome:
- Women & Girls & Femmes & GNC
- Men & Boys
- Families
- Indigenous, Black and People of Color
- Immigrants
- LGBTQIAA2S+ Community
- People with Disabilities
- Climate Change Advocates
- ALL religious communities
- Anyone else who wants to come out in positive support!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
IS THE RALLY AND MARCH ACCESSIBLE TO PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES?
Yes. We continue to make every effort to ensure accessibility, with more updates and details to follow.

IS THE RALLY AND MARCH FAMILY AND KID FRIENDLY?
Yes. We encourage everyone who shares the same values to attend and participate!

UNITY PRINCIPLES
The Women’s March on Washington convened a broad and diverse group of leaders to produce an intersectional platform known as the Unity Principles. Representing a new understanding of the connected nature of our struggles and a vision of our collective liberation, the Unity Principles continue to be a guiding light for our movement.
We believe that Women’s Rights are Human Rights and Human Rights are Women’s Rights. We must create a society in which women – including Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, disabled women, Muslim women, lesbian queer and trans women – are free and able to care for and nurture their families, however they are formed, in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments.

Become a CASA Volunteer!

NVCSS CASA will be holding two CASA training sessions in early 2018.
Training in Shasta County [Redding] begins on Wednesday, January 10 and will be held in the CASA Center at NVCSS at 2400 Washington Avenue.
Butte County training [Chico] begins on Thursday, February 1 and will take place at
our office in Chico.


CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives. CASA volunteers are definitely superheroes for the work they do for these children!

Download the volunteer application by visiting the NVCSS website: http://www.nvcss.org/casa
Application deadline for Shasta’s training is January 4; Butte’s deadline is January 27.

Northern California Residents Disaster Assistance

Residents of Butte, Lake, Mendocino and Yuba who suffered damage or losses from the devastating fires that began October 8, 2017 and continue to burn, can now register for disaster assistance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), if they are able to do so.
The amendment to the presidential disaster declaration of October 10, 2017 now makes federal assistance available to eligible individuals and business owners in a total of six northern California counties: Butte, Lake, Napa, Mendocino, Sonoma and Yuba.
Survivors who primarily reside in one of the six designated counties can apply online at DisasterAssistance.gov or by phone at 800-621-3362 or (TTY) 800-462-7585. Applicants who use 711 or Video Relay Service may call 800-621-3362. The toll-free numbers are open 7am to 10pm seven days a week.
Applicants will be asked for the following information:
•    Social Security number
•    Address of the damaged primary residence
•    Description of the damage
•    Information about insurance coverage
•    A current contact telephone number
•    An address where they can receive mail
•    Bank account and routing numbers for direct deposit of funds
Disaster assistance for homeowners and renters may include grants to help pay for:
•    Temporary housing
•    Essential home repairs
•    Uninsured and underinsured personal property losses
•    Other serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance.


Low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are available for businesses of all sizes, private non-profit organizations, homeowners and renters. Disaster loans cover losses not fully compensated by insurance or other recoveries.


FEMA grants do not have to be repaid. FEMA assistance is nontaxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits.
Registering with FEMA is required for federal aid, even if a survivor has registered with another disaster-relief organization, such as the American Red Cross.
Survivors should register even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled.
