We know the pain of losing children to state violence. We know the pain of striving for justice and being denied at every turn. We choose to tell their stories in the hopes that more mothers won’t have to go through what we’ve been through.
During his first full day in office, President Trump saw more than 1 million people participate in coordinated women's marches in cities around the country and the world.
Among the thousands were Angela Davis, Alicia Keys, the Mothers of the Movement, and more — who all provided priceless moments to remember.
"Will the Women’s March on Washington be a space filled primarily with participants who believe that Black lives matter? I’m not sure, especially considering the attitudes of some who have publicly stated that they don’t want to hear calls for attendees to check their White privilege at the proverbial door,” Jamilah Lemieux explains in an op-ed at ColorLines.
The women's march, reportedly the largest protest surrounding Trump’s inauguration, is slated to take place on January 21, a day after he is sworn into office.
