Why I Am Joining The March : I suffer from severe peripheral neuropathy and am unable to march in this historic event. I am joining because I want to stand up for disabled people everywhere! Thank you so much for creating this platform for those of us who would have been excluded.

Why I Am Joining The March : For too long I have focused on just life in my own little circle. Generally comfortable and safe in the trust that our American leaders could be reasonably relied on to represent and care for me, my family, my city, my state and my country. Complacent is the…

Rebecca Long

Why I Am Joining The March : I am joining the March because I feel that many aspects of my personhood are threatened and I must fight for both myself and others to create a country that values all bodies and minds. I’m autistic and have anxiety, so I am unable to attend a physical…

Sandra Goldstein Lehnert

Why I Am Joining The March : I am a 19-year old queer white person with a non-named (but still diagnosed) chronic illness and anxieties. My family is going to the Women’s March and, while I wish I could join them, I hope to create hope and be an activist in ways more complimentary to…

Why I Am Joining The March : To quote John Pavlovitz: History has been littered with horrible people who did terrible things with power, because too many good people remained silent. And since my fear is that we are surely entering one of those periods in our story, I wanted to make sure that I…

Veronica Bates

Why I Am Joining The March : Enough is enough. Women need to have a louder, stronger voice. It is 2017 and we are having to fight for our rights all over again. I stand with women! We are one! We are the champions of humanity!

Why I Am Joining The March: As a disabled lesbian, the policies so far shown, heralding what we might come to expect from the next four years are appalling. I wish my body would allow me to march with my sisters, but I will have my voice heard!

Chuck Christiansen

Why I Am Joining The March: As a woman, a feminist and a lesbian, I march to join the voices of all minority groups and those who will not be oppressed, will not go back in the closet, who will not go back to back-alley abortions, who will not be deported, who will not be…

LJ Roberts

Why I Am Joining The March: Ten years ago, I’d have been on the front lines as I was for marches for Fair Housing, civil rights, the ERA, and against the Vietnam War back in the 60s. Due to various chronic medical issues, that’s no longer possible. But I’m a world-class emailer, caller, petition signer…

Katina Phillpotts

Why I Am Joining The March: I do not support and am not represented by a man who openly mocks my disabled brothers and sisters. When I saw that moment I knew there was no way he could ever have the compassion needed for the office of President. He’s a shameful example to the world….

Heather Hall

Why I Am Joining The March: I’m a woman and a mother. Both my daughter and I are bisexual. I also have both a physical and mental health disability. I was also sexually assaulted December 16, 2016 and it was nearly fatal. I’m here to share my voice and be visible and counted. It’s so…

Janet Smith

Why I Am Joining The March: I am joining this march because it is more important than it has been in years to come together as a country and fight what we are going to be up against with a Trump presidency and Republicans in charge of both houses. We need to let these people…
