March for Social Justice and Women in Atlanta
March for Social Justice and Women in Atlanta was proud to be one of the 60,000 people taking part in the Atlanta March for Social Justice and Women on Saturday, January 21st. The march was a peaceful demonstration of solidarity bringing together members of underrepresented communities, women, and their allies in Georgia and nationally. The Atlanta March for Social Justice and Women began at the Center for Civil and Human Rights and ended at the Georgia State Capitol.
Marching for a Purpose
The march was peaceful and very inspiring. Marchers included a diverse representation of ethnic backgrounds, women, men, and children of all ages. Attendance at the march was definitely a true representation of the diversity of our world.
Atlanta was only one of the several marches that took place around the world. Marchers packed the streets of several cities and countries including Washington, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Boston, Houston, Chicago, London, Paris, Melbourne, Australia, and even Antarctica.
Ultimately, the marches were a demonstration of individuals standing together in solidarity for the protection of equal rights for women, minorities, LGTBQ, and all religious backgrounds.
“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.” — Audre Lorde
Why I Marched:
I marched for equal rights for all.
I marched for social justice.
I marched for my daughter and for my son.
I marched for the protection of LGBTQ.
I marched for reproductive rights.
When we went home and turned on the news, we saw that the media portrayed these marches as being against the president. That is not why we marched. We marched so that everyone would be represented under this new administration. Equal rights and justice for all.
