The time is now to make our voices heard.

Last weekend, I made the drive from NYC to DC with some girlfriends to join the Women's March on Washington and protest the incoming administration's values and agenda. The fact that Trump is now our president still feels like a dream... and while it's one we likely won't be waking up from any time soon, if there's one thing that participating in the march taught me it's that all hope is not lost

I still believe that the majority of Americans, and people across the world, still believe in progress: in furthering the rights of all people, regardless of gender, race, religion, sexuality, age, or income.  

The first few days of Trump's tenure have been discouraging, to say the least, but the progress of the past 100 years cannot be undone with the mere signing of a few papers. The time is NOW to react, however... so volunteer, donate, call, write, take action. We need to do anything and everything we can do to make our voices heard!

  1. It was so heart wrenching when he was announced as president. I live in LA and on the day of the march, I did not go due to work but I spent the entire day on social media using my voice. Along with seeing all the clever signs that were made, it was beyond heart warming to see all the hope that there is to be had. #letsdothis #feminysm

  2. oh I'm so glad you are using your platform for such good! I was there as well (though not as fabulously dressed- maybe the next one!)

    Keep up the good work!

  5. YESSSSS!!! So happy to see photos of your march in DC! And so very happy you are being calling everyone to action. The first day or two of Trump I was trying to tune it out like a bad dream...but I realize that's not going to do anybody any good. We have to unite and make our voices heard! So proud of you for showcasing all of this on your blog.
