The Women's March was spectacular. On January 21st, over one million in Washington, D.C. and over five million worldwide came to march, speak, and be heard/seen/counted. It was made clear in the U.S. that the election and the ensuing civil liberties-destroying madness don't represent the choices and opinions of every citizen. We marched hard and we wore vaginas on our heads, but unfortunately the fight doesn't end there. Since inauguration day, we've seen daily assaults to decency from the top down with the immigration ban, approved construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipeline, withholding of federal funds from sanctuary cities, Steve Bannon's installation to National Security Council as a permanent member of the principals committee, the firing of Attorney General Sally Yates, regular use of "alternative facts," and many more fresh hells served daily. It can be a daunting task just to get out of bed and check the news, but, as I covered in my last post, DOING SOMETHING is what's going to get us through this. DOING SOMETHING is what makes history.
