Watch Live: Women’s March on Washington (and Elsewhere)
The day following Donald Trump's inauguration, an estimated 200,000 people will take to the streets to join the Women's March on Washington, a demonstration that aims to be inclusive of the various issues and identities under threat during Trump’s quickly approaching presidency. It’s no surprise then that Latinas, who have been on the receiving end of several of the president-elect’s attacks, can be found throughout this movement, from the march’s national committee and its celebrity ambassadors to its coordinators and the everyday protestors who will set out to Washington, D.C. to use their voice for change.
“This march is not an anti-Trump march. We are marching for something: for human rights, women’s rights, reproductive rights,” Carmen Perez, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington and the executive director of The Gathering for Justice, a New York-based juvenile justice organization, tells us. “We are being intentional about being inclusive. We have to attack all the forces of evil. This is about our country; it’s about racism and fascism.” Full Article Here: LATINAS ARE PLAYING A MAJOR ROLE IN THE WOMEN’S MARCH ON WASHINGTON
