We March

My family marches today for people with disabilities, our LGBTQ community and family, our new immigrants and those wishing to become citizens.
We are marching today because we want those left behind to be caught up and to feel a part of our country and democracy.
We are marching today because hate has no place and empathy should rule.
We are marching with our boys so they know participation makes our democracy great.
We are marching today as we did in 1989 and 1992 in DC, for women’s rights and control over our own bodies.
We are marching not to protest one man or a government body, but to express our Constitutional right to raise their awareness and hope they hear.

Love Will Win
Fired Up, Ready to Go
