It’s been quite a year in the world, hasn’t it? I won’t write much, but after missing the Women’s March last year, I knew I had to be there if another march was to happen in 2018. I’m so glad we got to go.
My son is young, but it’s never too early to teach children about values and how people can come together to make a difference. I want him to know from the get-go what side of history his parents stand on. We stand for equality, understanding, and protection of everyone that is marginalized by violence and ignorance. We stand for a better future for all and for a better planet. Simple as that. We still have much to learn, but we know that we – as a country – are not quite headed in that direction.
This year, the goal of the march was to get the message out to vote during the midterm elections this November. This is the opportunity to change the direction of our future. If you haven’t yet, go. Register to vote, do your research, and get out to the polls in November. Make your voice heard. If you’re ready to get started, head to www.powertothepolls.com.
Snaps from the march… 🙂
Somebody is ready to take action!
Friends who stand up for everyone’s rights together… stay together 🙂
Someone asked for a photo of me and baby’s first protest. She then air dropped the photos to me. If you see this photo somewhere on the internet, please let me know lol
So thankful for my supportive husband.
Two mamas – 2 baby girls and 2 baby boys. Equally important to the shaping of our future.
Sure worked up an appetite! Our little feminists and our #1 doughnut squad. Luckily, there was a little park at Pershing Square where the kids got to play for a bit before and after the march!
Full disclosure: the march ended at City Hall, but we decided to go ahead and head back about halfway. My belly was getting achy and the crowds looked a bit overwhelming with kids. It was still a valuable experience 🙂
