Janette Murray

My name is Janette Murray and I am recently disabled. I want to march because I believe in equality. Equality for all.

After hearing so many stories via social media from people with disabilities fearing for their lives under a Trump presidency, I was empowered to march alongside as well. As a person with epilepsy, I doubted that I would have the stamina to make it through…
