I must protest, it’s not even a choice. I cannot sit home while racism, sexual assault, Islamophobia, and transmisogyny are legitimized by the incoming administration. I am marching for racial justice, and improved protections for people of color against discrimination in hiring, education, housing, healthcare, and law enforcement. I am marching against the vilification and persecution of Muslims and Hispanic immigrants. I am marching in support of women, who must be able to live without harassment and assault as an everyday backdrop to their lives. I am marching for the rights of transgender people, especially women, who are so often refused dignity, autonomy, and security. I am marching for my community, for people that I admire and love, whose lives are threatened by the bigotry of the incoming administration.
