Finding Valentine's Day gifts can be tricky, but we've found some socially responsible options.
It’s been nearly a year since President Donald Trump was inaugurated and the first Women’s March, which was most likely the largest single-day protest in American history, was held.
With millions taking part, there were concerns that there might be violence. Instead, the protests were peaceful. Men, women, and children marched, chanted, and listened to speakers who stood for equality and justice for all.
In less than two weeks, many who are passionate about gender equality, one of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, will march again.
This year’s event also kicks off a national voter registration tour, targeting swing states to register new voters, engage impacted communities, and harness collective energy to advocate for policies and candidates that reflect the organization’s values.
“Women’s March has created a powerful movement that has ignited thousands of activists and new leaders,” Tamika D. Mallory, co-president of the Women’s March said on the organization’s website. “In 2018, we must turn our work into action ahead of the midterms. This new initiative will address voter registration and voter suppression head on. We marched for justice in DC, we created our plan in Detroit, and now we’re bringing the power of the polls to Nevada.”
If you can’t make it to Nevada, it’s possible to join an anniversary event or sister march near you if you’re located near a major U.S. city. For expats, there are also marches planned in countries around the world.
*Please plan on wearing appropriate clothing and shoes. Last year’s marches were crowded, and you may end up standing for long periods of time. Also, be aware of local law enforcement’s rules about signage that can be created and carried to marches.
