SAN DIEGO (Jan. 19, 2019) -- KGTV's Rina Nakano reports -- San Diegans gathered Saturday for the third annual Women's March at Waterfront Park, alongside dozens of other national events taking place the same day. Inaugural marches drew millions to march in cities across the U.S. While this event is called the Women's March, many participants said this was not just about fighting for women's issues.

"We stand against racism, antisemitism, homophobia, transphobia..." said one podium speaker.

Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, Assemblyman Todd Gloria, and San Diego City Attorney Mara Elliot were some of the few guest speakers at the event.

"It has become intersectional right? We care about all people, and I think that's indicative of women. We're mothers, and we know that these people could be our children," Gonzalez Fletcher said.
