Together We Rise For Justice
Rise and Resist, NYC Women’s March, January, 20, 2018
Make Noise with Rise and Resist and unite for justice at the 2018 Women’s March on NYC!
Together, we fight bigotry, violence, and systemic discrimination in all its forms, including those directed at people because of their disability, gender identity/expression, immigration status, race, religion, sex and sexuality.
Wear: As the march hits its 2nd year, we march dressed in black in solidarity with activists across the country. We encourage you to update your hats, jazz up your messages with buttons or any creative ideas that empower you and include the excluded so that we can stay and fight together.
