I have spoken with a lot of people confused and surprised why millions of people showed up to protest yesterday.
"Women are marching because our children deserve a secretary of education that cares about education.
"Women are marching because our family and friends deserve healthcare. Did you know that before the Affordable Health Care Act, newborns in the ICU would hit their lifetime caps on health insurance coverage. That's right, Babies who had never felt the sun on their skin could no longer get health insurance.
"Women are marching because domestic violence crisis centers and after school programs deserve funding."Women are marching because we deserve clean air, clean water, and national parks.
"Women are marching because we believe the children protected by the DREAM act deserve to be here and they deserve to live with their parents, not in orphanages and foster homes."And most of all, women are marching because we have the right to. The right to protest and speak out against our government is the first amendment. That's right, #1! It is one of our most fundamental American rights.
"Saying that people are whining, throwing temper tantrums, immature, or need to get over it will not stop us. It will not stop us from fighting for you. And we are fighting for you because you deserve these rights too.
"People are not marching because Trump won."They are marching because he wants to take away freedoms that we hold dear. All of the things that we've been fighting for for generations."If you have not starting marching or getting involved in preserving things you hold dear.... find a movement and don't give up easily."Fight because you refuse to lose more."(Please copy and paste instead of sharing).
