ON JANUARY 21st, 2017, AT LEAST THREE MILLION MEN AND WOMEN from around the world joined in solidarity to peacefully stand up for human rights and protest the Trump administration’s intolerant agenda. Women’s Marches took place in all seven continents to stand with the United States. High School Democrats from across the country participated in the Women’s March on Washington or a Sister March nearby. They, and the rest of those who advocated for human rights in the spirit of democracy, showed the world that one thing is certain: our voices still matter.
