Snail

I am both queer and autistic. The eugenics philosophy driving so much of our current administration wants to kill me on two fronts. I won’t roll over and die for them. I was unable to attend a physical march because I experience disorientation and panic attacks in large crowds, but I am so happy to…

Mandy G

I suffer from multiple chronic disorders that are preventing me from participating. I would have never been able to get appropriate diagnoses and treatments if it weren’t for the ACA. I am unable to work and am terrified I’ll be unable to have continued insurance. I had 5 hospital stays in the last year. There…

Carolyn Johnson

I stand with everyone. If I could physically March I would!

I marched against the actions of the Republicans when they held their convention in NYC and I have protested another election in…

Mimi Murtagh

As both a woman and an American with a disability, I believe it is important that the 45th president of my country see me and know what America is made of. I want to “stand up” to the hatred and bigotry that people like Donald Trump have embodied through their choice of words and actions….

Sarah

I would be marching in Washington or San Francisco, but I have chronic Lyme disease and back and hip problems which make it too hard. I want Trump to know we won’t tolerate his hatred, bigotry or misogyny. I am fearful for all the people that may lose their health care and for all of…

Chelsy Jacobus

I am joining this march for so many reasons, but mainly because I believe that quality healthcare is a basic human right and not a luxury. I am plagued by the knowledge that under Trump’s presidency I may go back to the days where I could not afford the medication I need to survive. When…
