The Women’s March: What were you marching for?

A couple weeks ago over 3 million people worldwide marched for justice, the rights of the marginalized, a better future and for what makes America beautiful in the Women’s March. Three AMPster’s share their own experiences.

Nicki participated in the “Disability March,” an amazing and inclusive alternative for people who were not able to participate in a physical march but still wanted their voices to be heard.

Beatrice marched (and lead the cheer/chant section) in New York City with “the most inspiring and kind people ever” to further the cause of intersectional feminism.

Emily felt at home marching for women’s rights and the rights of marginalized groups with her community. She marched for her beliefs and felt empowered by her town’s 20,000 marcher- strong force standing united.

The March on Washington and its 670+ sister marches around the world emphasized the power and value of diversity, tolerance and standing up for positive change — all things that make America great.
