I’m heading to the Women’s March on Washington on Jan. 21 because I believe there is no more important moment than right now to stand for the values I believe in. In fact I booked my flight to Washington on Nov. 13 – as soon as I knew there was even the chance of a Women’s March. I am thrilled to see this effort gaining momentum with support from progressive organizations such as Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America (who we are proud to partner with at CREDO).
I am going to march to stand for women’s rights and to ensure that the new administration knows they have no mandate to gut the gains made by women over the past 50 years. We will not go back. But all of us have many deeply felt reasons for marching – against hate, racism, sexism, Islamophobia, homophobia and climate deniers. One thing is clear: we are all united in standing for equality.
We were having a conversation in the office about what my sign should say. So the team here at CREDO developed a series of signs we want to share with you that speak to many of the values we share. We hope you find a message that resonates for you personally or that inspires your own.
I hope these signs give you inspiration and that maybe I’ll see you in Washington.
