I am joining the march because I cannot physically march but I want to add my voice to resist this administration.

I’m joining this protest because I’m scared for my family and friends well being.My Mitochondrial disease seems to be worsening and with the healthcare system changing I’m concerned it could gravely effect my life.

I have joined the disability March because i can’t walk great distances since my accident in 2005 left me with bone on bone in my ankle, amongst other injuries. I feel that it’s imperishable that our rights are protected.  We must show up, speak up, and be vocal and visual and hold this administration accountable.

I am marching because even before I got sick I believed that health care is a basic human right. Like millions of others, I am terrified that I will be left without proper health care because I am too sick to work and earn employment benefits. I may be bedridden right now, but I still…

I am not disabled….. but, I teach adaptive sports at Achieve Tahoe and I won’t let Trump make me miss a day of that. I will be on the mountain granting access to the magic of skiing to different athletes instead of marching with friends. I was promoted to captain and have my own crew….I have…
