Marching for a Cause, United We StandAdded: 01/23/2017
On January 21, the Women’s March brought together six million people across the globe – five million from the U.S. alone – who marched and stood together in solidary against hate, women’s rights, human rights and social injustice. This landmark demonstration was so much bigger than any one person, and to see so many strong women, men and children come together to march on Sacramento’s capitol in support was truly a sight to behold. It was amazing and empowering to have so many people from all walks of life come together, united, in Sacramento knowing that other people in different cities across the world were doing the same exact thing – it’s just unbelievable.
Anna Vue, the principal of Solsken and a strong advocate for human rights, was there leading the rally outside of California’s State Capitol, doing her part to support this amazing cause.
The Women’s March in Sacramento organized a very well-coordinated event. For me, this event had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with giving women a voice and ensuring human rights for future generations. While one voice may not have a huge impact, when united, change can happen. They have a quote on their website that I found particularly inspiring:
We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.
I could not have said it better myself.
