You might have been noticing invitations pop up for a march tomorrow on your Facebook feed. Here is some information (directly taken from the founders themselves via www.womensmarch.com) in order to understand why it's important to make a stance. This is by no means a post advertising the activity. This is merely something that I am passionate about and wanted you guys to know what is happening tomorrow around the world :)

What is it? : 

The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us - immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault - and our communities are hurting and scared. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.
In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.
HEAR OUR VOICE.

Where?: 
There will be marches taking place around the world tomorrow. An estimated 616 marches will be taking places in the United States (not including the largest at Washington DC) with 1,364  sister marches around the world. In order to see if there is a march near you check https://www.womensmarch.com/sisters for times and locations.

Why should I join?: 

At the end of the day, the decision is up to you. If you feel uncomfortable with the remarks made by President Elect Trump on woman and minorities this is your time to stand up and show that you are not okay with how he treats us woman. It's simply unacceptable, and it needs to be stopped.
