This is what democracy looks like!
I’m still reeling from the incredible high from marching with 36,000 other grassroots activists at this year’s Sacramento Women’s March. I stood alongside DREAMers and survivors and advocates of all stripes.
Have you followed our campaign on Facebook or Twitter yet? If you’re invested in grassroots politics, sign on and follow our people-powered movement digitally. Tag us in your Women’s March photos using #MarchingWithBateson now and we’ll share our favorites next week in a #ThrowbackThursday roundup!
The Women’s Marches are a beautiful show of solidarity, resistance and the sheer power of grassroots organizing. With every step, we are creating a generation of leaders, activists, and fighters who know that we are greatest when we raise our voices. I loved seeing the boys and girls with signs like “If you build a wall, my generation will tear it down!” and “Tweet Women With Respect”.
But by far, my favorite sign was one I saw everywhere: The Future Is Female. Michael, we have the future of California’s 4th district in our hands!
P.S. We know that #TeamBateson is a nationwide effort. To include all the folks who couldn’t join us in Sacramento, activists across the US tweeted their signs, videos, chants, and all sorts of photos – check more of them out on Twitter #MarchingWithBateson.
