On January 21, 2017, more than 1 million people in Washington, DC and 5 million people around the world marched in solidarity. We marched for the rights of all women, which meant we also marched for the rights of people of color, people who identify as LGBTQIA, people with disabilities, immigrants, and people of all religious faiths. You can watch more of my march reflections here. While it was the largest one-day protest in US history, this is not a one day movement. As the Women's March mission statement reads: We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society.
There are many next steps: Join organizations like your local Urban League or Planned Parenthood, send women to VoteRunLead and Ready to Run to launch their own political campaigns, and get action reminders through Calls For Change. But the most important thing I encourage each of us to do is to keep marching.
