Group of 4 marchers

Kim Hall

Why I Am Joining The March: As a woman, I march to be a light and to let my own light shine. As a sister, I march for all of us who know that our value is in how well we take care of each other – not how much we take for ourselves. As a mother, I march for our daughters (including mine, pictured here) and our sons to see strength, hope and action in the women they know and love. As a daughter, I march for our mothers who blazed the trails, raised us well and may need a hand as they age.And as a brain tumor survivor, I march ‘virtually’ in support of those of us battling with invisible and visible illness and disability. Like my daughter, I too want to be heard.

Why I Am Joining The March: I was originally scheduled to join the Washington DC march and I got very sick on the plane ride to the US so couldn’t travel down with my small children safely. We’d like to join via the disability march if possible.

Why I Am Joining The March: I want to march to protest the presidency of Trump.  I am asking the congress to consider the unprepared cabinet choices that have no experience very carefully and reject those that are the most unacceptable.  I am asking congress to finally pass the ERA and give women full rights and protections of a citizen.   I am asking to protect the ACA and not repeal it.  Also protect a woman’s right to choose and women’s health care and protect marriage equality.  I want congress to oppose the stupid and useless and very expensive wall on our southern border and fight back against vilifying any one for race or religion.  I am asking congress to NOT de-fund Planned Parenthood.  I am asking congress to protect our public schools and make them stronger and better.  An educated population is necessary for a good future for us all.  I am asking congress to NOT privatize our national parks.  These places are important treasures and must be protected for us and generations to come.   I am asking congress not to privatize or cut my Social Security and Medicare.  And to protect medicaid as well. I am marching so congress will know I am watching every vote, every action they take and their actions will have consequences.
