We were appalled when President-elect Donald Trump nominated Jeff Sessions, a blatant racist, to be our next US Attorney General. Sessions opposes criminal justice reform, supports voter repression, and even voted against the Violence Against Women Act! As his confirmation hearing began, we were there in beautiful color, holding signs of End Islamophobia, Stop Sessions, Support LGBTQ Rights, Immigrants Welcome, and End Racism.
We will be continuing to bring this same message as we disrupt business as usual, disrupting the Inaugural, inside and out, to Rise, Love, and Resist Trump’s incoming administration of intolerance, Islamophobia, racism, militarism, misogyny, and more and stand with the most vulnerable among us have been threatened by the new Administration..
On inauguration day, we will begin at 7 am at Union Station and will start off with the One Billion Rising flash mob dance to break the chains of rape culture, hatred, patriarchy, militarism, and violence. Outside the inaugural balls and during the Women’s March on Washington, we will wear pussy hats, carry hearts, and create vibrant beauty to show our power to create the world we want to live in.
Acting with love to create a peaceful world!
