Successful Advocate

Ms. Bland was successful in turning her election grief into an incredible National Committee which organized the historical Women’s March on Washington with an inspiring panel of speakers to call their fellow grieving sisters (and brothers) to join them in a movement to help America equally bestow her Rights on all citizens.

Ms. Bland’s dream quickly became a global march for all women everywhere.

The Women’s March restored me.  I grew as a person, woman, a wife, a mom, sister, an advocate, a friend and American.

Over half a million men and women shut down America’s Capital to advocate for all women – to advocate for the human race.

I am thankful I attended and feel blessed to have been part of a historical event.

I am very grateful to my friend, Donna and her daughter and friend for agreeing to be my chaperone.

The March became a movement. My sisters and I are committed to “a society in which women – including Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, disabled women, Muslim women, lesbian queer and trans women – are free and able to care for and nurture their families, however they are formed, in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments”.  And we are called to action for the following issues:

·       Ending gender-based violence

·       Reproductive rights and women’s health

·       LGBTQIA rights

·       Worker’s rights

·       Civil rights

·       Immigrant rights

·       Religious freedom

·       Environmental Justice

Please join “We the People”

We the People … to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity  ~ Preamble to the United States Constitution

What does democracy look like? We are what democracy looks like!

Thank you Bob Bland, co-chairs, sponsors and partners for turning your growl for justice into action for a better tomorrow.
