Today’s Action: Women’s March TODAY

Today’s the day! Grab your protest sign and head over to the fourth annual Women’s March, happening today across the country. Originally launched the day after Trump’s inauguration, we hope this year’s Women’s March is the last he sees (and petulantly tweets about) from the White House.

This year’s Women’s March focuses on three key topics: reproductive rights, climate change, and immigration justice. Looking beyond the GOP’s appalling attacks on reproductive rights, 80% of those displaced from climate change disasters are women. Similarly, Trump’s immigration atrocities are a feminist issue: women and their children comprise 75% of all immigrants to the U.S. each year. The march encompasses not just women in the United States, but in other countries – acknowledging the direct impact Trump’s policies have on women around the globe.

Women’s Marches planned across the United States and internationally! Search for an event near you and plan to attend this Saturday, January 18th.

Republicans – including the women of the GOP – have made it their mission to systematically remove the rights of women in this country and beyond. From installing anti-choice judges to voting in favor of restrictive and unconstitutional reproductive laws, from backing Trump as he pulled out of the Paris climate deal to clawing for billions funding to install extra detention beds at the border, GOP policy is in direct conflict with the health, rights, and livelihood of women everywhere.

Today is the day for women to #RiseUp and show their unified power alongside supportive allies. And frankly, Republicans must be absolutely terrified of women…otherwise why would they work so hard to contain them?

Enter your zip code to find a Women’s March near you and join thousands of sisters speaking out and standing up for reproductive rights, climate change, and immigration justice.
