This presidency is about so much more than just politics, it’s about basic human decency. I want to take a stand to teach my young daughter to grow up and respect and to fight for all people regardless of gender, gender identity, race, class, culture, sexual orientation, or whatever mental or physical impairments that they may have. I am thrilled to find a way to be able to “march” alongside my friends and family in D.C and in Raleigh any way that I can, when my physical disability prevents me from doing so. I am a stay at home wife and mother to a wonderful and supportive husband and amazing and feisty 3 year old daughter. I am very passionate about equality for all. The constant, debilitating pain and mobility issues from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome has prevented me from marching alongside my friends and family and I was struggling quite a bit with not being able to be part of it. Thank you for giving a voice to those who are not physically able to attend.
