Thousands of women are gearing up to gather in the U.S. capitol on Saturday for the Women's March on Washington.
This year starts with a clear statement to the incoming presidential administration - Women WILL stand up for immigrants and minorities. All the way across the world (hey, Dublin!), our voices echo theirs.
Meet us at the Garden of Remembrance this Saturday, January 21 at 12:00 p.m.

Some excerpts from the Women's March's Mission & Principles:
we believe that women's rights are human rights and human rights are women's rights.
We must create a society in which women - including Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, Muslim women, and 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.
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.
We're channeling our collective power - for marginalized peoples & for ourselves... 'cuz we're all in this together, right!? Which organizations in your area support anti-discrimination initiatives and immigration rights? How can you get behind them?
