inauguration is supposed to be meant to give voice to people who were
"marginalized" by his campaign, but at least two pro-life groups have
pledged to join in. (Photo: Reuters/via Charisma News)
Organizers of the Women's March on Washington offer the following description of their event:
On Jan. 21, 2017, we will unite in Washington, DC, for the Women's
March on Washington. We stand together in solidarity with our partners
and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health,
and our families—recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities
are the strength of our country.
The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized and
threatened many of us—women, immigrants of all statuses, those with
diverse religious faiths particularly Muslim, people who identify as
LGBTQIA, native and indigenous people, black and brown people, people
with disabilities, the economically impoverished and survivors of sexual
assault. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in
the face of national and international concern and fear.
In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human
rights, dignity and justice who have come before us, we join in
diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The
Women's March on Washington will send a bold message to our new
administration on their first day in office and to the world that
women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that
defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our
multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human
rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our
communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the
grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity
at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while
recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.
Hear our voice.
But if the event is going to focus on the marginalized voices of
women, the leaders of Stanton Policy Center, Sound Legal Group and other
pro-life groups from across the nation want to make sure it's every
voice that is heard.
