Group of Six Marchers

Lorre Leon Mendelson   You all did an amazing job putting this together. My goal is to work with Nashville, TN organizers and as much nationally as possible so we will participate more in future actions with Women and Men, for all political and social actions. Because we are NOT an afterthought, we are NOT…

Jeanine

I wish I could go physically, to lend support. I believe in this movement. Our voices need to be heard.

Mackenzie S. I oppose everything Donald Trump, his voters, and the new Republican congress stand for. We cannot and will not let this monster win. I will not be oppressed and I will fight in solidarity for others so gravely endangered under this new regime. This is why I marched the two blocks I was…

Kaitlyn Goldstein

I am a disabled female child, and what happens now will affect me and my sister and mother in the future. I rely on the Affordable Healthcare Act for my medical needs and I deserve to have an equal opportunity at life despite my gender or medical diagnosis.  

Colleen Steckel

I have myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), a disabling disease that inhibits the body’s ability to generate energy and exchange oxygen. I am mostly homebound. I am grateful for an opportunity to march virtually. I run a support group for people with ME, CFS, Fibromyalgia, Gulf War Illness, and chronic Lyme Disease which can be found on…

Disability rights are human rights. Women’s rights are human rights. LGBT+ rights are human rights.

I am very concerned about the misogyny, bigotry, and lack of integrity of the new President and his cabinet. I live in California.

Nissa

Due to poor post partum care, I am still recovering 17 months after what I never realized before was major abdominal surgery. I’ve come a long way in healing after my emergency cesarean. But I still have a long way to go. I used to do 14 mile hikes. Today, I’m lucky to be able…

Rozalynn

This is my 92-year-old mother, who was a community activist in the 1960s, 70s,and 80s. We marched as a family in the urban city streets of Oakland. And we believe that our voices still count. Although she is unable to be there, she was strengthened when I told her of the continuing effort and spirit commuting…

Betsy

Thank you for including everyone! My daughters are marching in their hats with rainbow trim to stand for equality and inclusion for one and all. Now I feel like I can be part of this amazing event!

Elizabeth

I have arthritis and am not able to participate in either the Washington or Sacramento, CA marches, although I would LOVE TO! I am 69-years-old and was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I am very concerned about the ACA and even Medicare and Social Security being repealed or privatized, as many people will lose their…

Knitty Biddy

If I’m having a good day, I *could* march. It would be hell…but I could. But I would pay for it,  going days (or weeks) with pain, difficulty thinking, dizziness, nausea, and an exhaustion that is indescribable. These days I’m saving my energy and pacing myself for the long political battle ahead. So I’m thrilled…
