I am 80-yrs-old, and I really wanted to attend one of the marches. But I was concerned about my stamina due to arthritis and A-fib which sometimes leaves me weak and short of breath. But I am so happy to be a part of this way of showing my support to the march and for…

I am joining the Disability March in solidarity with my sisters in the US from Glasgow, Scotland. I am unable to march due to Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, POTS, chronic pain, chronic fatigue and the Fragile X Premutation. As a disabled bisexual woman, I am marching for the human rights of women, people of colour, LGBT, and…

I’m marching because, in addition to his other atrocities, Trump has apparently allowed the disability rights page to be removed at whitehouse.gov already. As a neurodiverse and physically disabled woman, I want to support the rights of my LD students, disabled colleagues, ACA beneficiaries as well as all other oppressed persons.

  We are joining the disability march as our son has a diagnosis of autism and cannot handle the crowds, noise, and unpredictability involved in a gathering like this. Grateful for the opportunity to participate in this way! We, as a family, believe women’s rights are human rights and will be spending the morning of…

I have been unable to walk unassisted since Nov 1, 2016 due to a broken foot. Although my disability is temporary, without healthcare, a supportive family, and a work-at-home job, I would be lost. I march for all the rights of all to affordable healthcare, a living wage, gender equality, protections of ACA, and reproductive…

Hello all, So glad Disability March was created! I would have LOVED to attend the Women’s March in DC, but I have chronic Lyme, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, arthritis & fibro (from tick borne diseases). It would have been too exhausting. I’m in rural western (faaaar west) Massachusetts. But I did do my part in supporting…

I am lucky. I do not have a longterm disability, but I am currently unable to walk due to complications regarding a major leg surgery. I am lucky enough to have stable pay and health insurance, but for those without, I cannot fathom the stress and depression that is brought about in their lives. I…

  I march because being chronically and invisibly ill is hard to admit and it shouldn’t be. I’m done seeing my illness portrayed as a joke. I’m frustrated with my illness being misunderstood. I march for myself, other disabled people, minorities, LGBTQ, religious freedom, affordable education, and healthcare. I am a freelance artist.

I wanted to join the Womens’ March so badly, but due to my fatigue, fibromyalgia, and migraines it just wasn’t in the cards. I nearly cried when I came across this opportunity. As a queer, disabled woman this new administration terrifies me and I want to let them know that I’m not backing down and…
