I am joining the march because the ACA is what made it possible for me to seek treatment for my medical problems. I deal with sciatica and uterine fibroids, and on top of that don’t have the funds to join the march in person. I want to fight to keep healthcare affordable and accessible to…

I am joining the Disability March to stand in unity with all people who are concerned and afraid about this new administration. Our diversity is our strength and all people deserve to feel safe and valued. My daughter will be marching in Washington, DC but, unfortunately, my auto-immune conditions will prevent me from being there….

I suffer from an auto-immune disease and other chronic illnesses so marching is not an option for me. I want to represent for people of oppressed communities against Trump. I am part of this movement, we deserve better. Check out more from Moda Muses on her blog!

Leading the greatest nation on the face of the Earth is a position that requires integrity, a history of service and dedication, and sensitivity to all — regardless of political affiliation, gender, or social position. I think that Donald Trump is an unqualified megalomaniac who is looking for more, higher & better achievements to add…

I worry deeply about the future of our country for many reasons, given all that has happened in this past Presidential election.

I am disabled with a back condition and currently experiencing a flare that has me in a lot of pain. I’ve relied on the ACA for healthcare coverage for the past few years. It’s vitally important that our country affirm the importance of caring for the most vulnerable, protect those who are discriminated against, and…

I would be attending our local March in Ireland if not for limited mobility from a genetic disability called Ehlers Danlos. There are myriad of reasons why I feel strongly about protesting the president elect in the USA but topping the list are the fact that he is a rapist and an abuser and should…

I was appalled when PE Trump made fun of the disabled reporter at one of his rallies. It absolutely made me sick to my stomach. Then when I heard him say the things he did about women, I simply could not understand how anyone could vote for him. I would like for my voice to…

I┬ádon’t want the generation coming up now to have to fight the same fight I did just to survive. I want those who have them, to be able to have their neurodivergence, their mental illnesses, and their invisible or visible disabilities acknowledged, accepted, and accommodated. I want them not to have those differences used to…
