“Activism is my rent for living on the planet.”
― Alice Walker
Went to the Women’s March on Washington where I was humbled and inspired. So many people. They were fierce and friendly and clearly and vocally committed to justice and equity. People marched on every continent (humbling) and people all over the country marched (inspiring).
There were so many great signs, many of them handmade. Lots of rumbling about how science matters, black lives matter, and women’s rights are human rights. I can get behind all of that (and more)!
Here are a few of the many images I took to remember this historic day. And here are 10 actions we can all take in the next 100 days to keep the energy focussed on momentum. Please do not go quietly into this dark night. Rise, rise, rise. We are the people.
