USA, March & Knit for Resistance
(Image by https://www.pussyhatproject.com/)

This January 21st we will march together with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families and in solidarity with those who were most insulted, marginalized, and threatened during the election cycle – immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault.

We will send a bold message to the Trump administration on their first day in office, and to the world, that Women Say No to War and that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.

For this moment of resistance, we are supporting the PussyHat Project, which seeks to provide the people of the Women’s March on Washington, DC a means to make a unique collective visual statement which will help activists be better heard, and provide people who cannot physically be on the National Mall a way to represent themselves and support women’s rights.

If you are a knitter who wants to participate in the Women’s March on Washington D.C., but perhaps cannot attend yourself, please consider making a PINK HAT for a person who will be there. The weather in D.C. that day will be a high of 35-45° F, so hats will be practically important to keep warm. Learn more about the PussyHat Project and get instructions on how to make a hat!

Ann, Ariel, Farida, Jodie, Medea, Mariana, Nancy, Paki, Paula, Samira and the CODEPINK team
