Baby Walter

My son is joining the disability March to represent the children of the US who will be adversely affected by Republican plans to repeal Obamacare and put access to a free and appropriate public education in jeopardy.  My son has a rare and complex medical condition and has already surpassed the lifetime benefit cap that…

Group of Six Marchers

Paul Saulinas I am a disabled American with Asperger’s Syndrome and it is important for people to realize that we are what makes the world unique. This is our country and our world, where everyone is entitled to their rights and that our rights and the lives of those with disabilities matter just as much…

Mary Mary Quite Contrary

The Affordable Care Act saved my life last year when I was diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer. The treatment left me with mobility problems, but I’m not about to let anyone grab my pussy. And I’m not going to sit on my ass and watch this overgrown baby with tiny hands Tweet America into the…

Lauren

Wish I could be there to march in person.

Terry

I march for women’s rights, Planned Parenthood, LBGT rights, and freedom of the press against a man who seems to be taking daily steps towards dictatorship.  

Eva the Diva

Eva has many challenges, and has enjoyed support from her community.  This support now seems threatened given the words and actions of the new administration. Eva Dougherty is a student at Overbrook School for the Blind in Philadelphia.

Judi

I’m participating in solidarity with the marvelous diversity of human beings who live in this nation.   May the country thrive in harmonious conditions, governed by laws that allow everyone to live the life we each determine, whatever suits ourselves best.

Joey K

Dear Disability March, My name is Joey and I have never felt so trapped as I do right now. The Achilles tendons I was born with were too tight and too short, and as a result I have walked on my toes since I was able to walk. It’s left me w1ith chronic pain in…

divabutterfly

I’m marching with you today because I refuse to allow my rights and the rights of other women, minorities, and under-served people to be taken away. 

Kate

I have endometriosis and am not able to participate in the march. I want to march because our new president is a vile and misogynistic creep and I’m shocked at a nation who would ignore his obvious hatred for women. I’m terrified for my future ability to get reproductive health care, and I can’t watch…

Simara

My name is Simara. I would love to be marching in London UK in solidarity with you all but since I can’t be there I am so grateful for another way to show my support. I have a number or relatively minor physical impairments: mild but persistent chronic pain, joint and balance issues, fatigue, an…

Helen S

I am joining the disability march because disability doesn’t define me or make me less of a person. I “march” virtually because we all need to stand up for those who are vulnerable. I am a very fortunate married mother of two adult children. I have been disabled from working for 6 years, by a…
