Polly Atkin

If I could, I would join the closest march to me, which will be taking place in Lancaster, UK. I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and Genetic Haemochromatosis: both of which cause widespread joint pain and fatigue that, amongst other symptoms, make joining a physical march too debilitating. Americans with chronic conditions and disabilities like mine will be some of the most vulnerable under a Trump regime. In joining the Disability March, I want to show my support to all those who feel their wellbeing and safety is threatened, and to come together with like-minded people to call for a better future.
