Why I Am Joining The March : #1 Trump has publicly proved himself a reprobate & a playboy. #2 I believe he is exactly that; therefore lacks basic requirements to sit in the most beloved, respected chair of our nation. #3 He is unqualified to represent me/us.

Why I Am Joining The March : I cannot physically join the march due to complex PTSD (exacerbated by police brutality during Occupy Oakland protests) and severe arthritis in my knees.

Why I Am Joining The March : In 1978 I marched in DC for the ERA with my mother and sister. I remember the bitter disappointment and grim determination of everyone when it failed to pass. The elders said to me, “We may never see true equality in our lifetimes, or a president that truly…

I am queer and neurodivergent. All people regardless of gender, race/ ethnicity, country of origin, ability, health, sexuality, class status deserve respect, opportunity and to live well. No one should have to go at life alone.
