Women’s March on Lansing – because these pussies grab back
For those of us who can’t attend the Women’s March on Washington
Many people, especially women and minority groups, feel disenfranchised and discriminated against by the Trump campaign and incoming administration. As a result, a Women’s March on Washington is scheduled to take place tomorrow, January 21 – Donald Trump’s first official day in office as President of the United States.
Obviously, not everyone can make it to D.C. just for this. People have classes to study for and jobs to work at, and many simply just don’t have the time or means to get to D.C. in time.
…Which, it turns out, is perfectly fine because there are similar demonstrations taking place in almost every state in America on the very same day.
For us Michiganders, a Women’s March on Lansing will take place at the Capitol Building from 1-3pm. It is in conjunction with the Women’s March on Washington and stands as a demonstration for the equality and validation of all humans residing in this country. If you can go, go.
Speakers for the event include:
- Gretchen Whitmer, 2018 Democratic candidate for governor
- Gretchen Driskell, former Democratic state representative
- Farha Abbasi from the Michigan Muslim Community Council
- Lavonia Perryman, former chairwoman of the Michigan Democratic Party Black Caucus
- Barb Byrum, Ingham County Clerk
- Jessica Lumbreras, Planned Parenthood patient advocate
- Dizzy Warren, Executive Director of Enroll Michigan
- Lisa Brown, Oakland County Clerk and former state representative
- Julia Pulver, Director of Women Organize Michigan
You can RSVP to the event page, along with the other 8,200 people planning to attend. For those who won’t be near Lansing tomorrow for the march, there are similar events happening around Michigan on the same day – Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids included.
Even if you can’t attend tomorrow’s march, you can still show your love and support to those who are. Let’s help them make a point that even our new president will take note of.
