More than 200,000 people are expected to descend on Washington D.C. for the Women’s March on Washington, January 21, 2017; hundreds of thousands more will participate in nearly 100 planned “Sister Marches” all over the country. In addition, in a show of unity, more than 30 other countries have planned similar support marches. For some, it’s a protest. For others, it’s a way to state a cause. And, for many others, it’s a way to use their voices in protest, frustration, unity, collaboration, etc. They will do so with passion, intent and purpose. Not since the Civil Rights Era has the United States seen this type of activism and involvement. Here are just a few of the many beautiful and disparate voices which will merge as a collaborative cacophony on that day, including that of original organizer, Hawaiian attorney and grandmother, Theresa Shook, whose casual facebook post and comment became an impassioned call-to-action, which has ignited and awakened a firestorm in (nearly) everyone.
Hear the words of more than one dozen activists from across the country. This week on Sprouts.
