Jennifer Dexter. Why I Am Joining The March: I am a 41 year old recently hit with a number b of medical setbacks which has rendered me in capable of joining in this movement. I would like to participate but physically can not. I am scared like all those marching of this administration and the future of our country. Health care aside we are in for a wild scary ride, I for one would like to stop it before too much damage is done. Please include me in this virtual march! http://prime40blog.wordpress.com
Mary R. Martin. Why I Am Joining the March: Even though I reside in a country not known to be publically involved in the politics of the USA, it is my great desire to be a part of the Virtual Women’s March on Washington. many thanks for your sensitivity.
Anita Fiessi. Why I Am Joining the March: I suffer from depression and I have been on SSDI for many years and I pay for my medicare out of my SSDI money. I wanted to go to either the San Francisco or Oakland march yet I now have a cold that I haven’t been able to treat very well. I wish I had the stamina to do a walk.
Jenn Wolff. Why I Am Joining the March: I can’t be in DC and have been in and out of the hospital for the last 6 months. As an advocate and wheelchair user, I am scared.
Susan. Why I Am Joining the March: I want to march because disabled women with pre-existing conditions should not have to worry about not having proper access to healthcare they need. I march for my mom who is a woman veteran too and also disabled.
Angela Quinn. Why I Am Joining the March: Mr Trump fightens me. His picks for his cabinet are nothing more than members of the 1% who have no knowledge of the needs of the average American. His not believing in the science of climate change places a fear in me of the future of our planet that will be the burden of our children and grandchildren. As not only a person with a disability but also a parent of an adult child with a disability I fear that my child will lose much needed services with the talk of cuts to things such as medicaid and medicare. His picks of such people like DeOvs and Park show just how much Mr Trump does not understand our special children.
Jane Darin. Why I Am Joining the March: I am joining because i believe it’s time for women to be included as full citizens in our lives, jobs, pay checks, health decisions, personal safety, education and governments. I am 78 years old and I am convinced that a woman’s point of view is just the ticket to expand our communitiez to include everyone! Sending love, Jane
Cheryl Lorrain. Why I Am Joining The March: I have severe arthritis, fibromyalgia and CFS. If I could personally attend a March I would! Even if I would “pay” for doing so for several days afterwards. It’s that important to me to be heard. However I recently broke a foot and am in a “boot” for several weeks. I did give my pink hat to a friend to wear as she marches. She’s promised to march for me! My daughter-in-law has also promised to march for me as well.
Jen Brooks. Why I Am Joining The March: Because I believe that America was great before January 20th, 2017, and I think that if we work hard enough, we can keep it that way!
Eileen Baumann. Why I Am Joining The March: Spirit is willing; knees are weak! I support the women of the US and will do what I can to peacefully ensure that our rights aren’t reduced under the new administration. I have marched for civil rights before and wish I could join this march.
