Jackie W.

Gender and disability politics has affected my entire life. I developed disabling PTSD as a result of gender-related violence and marginalization, spent years housebound from PTSD, and today work in an infamously patriarchal industry. I am excited to lovingly join the Resistance and unite against the very hate which has fueled so much suffering.

We are the Resistance.

I am joining the march to make it known that people on the margins form the Resistance too. I have severe PTSD, I can’t tolerate crowds or loud noises, and like many people, women’s rights and particularly their intersection with disability rights has affected my entire life. As a queer woman with disabilities, I want to make my voice heard: we are the Resistance.
