Why I Marched: Josine D.
Minnesota, it's time to march again! Join the #WomensWave on January 19, 2019.
After the election in 2016, I went into a funk. I turned off Facebook, I turned off the television. I turned inward. For me, it was a time of healing and deep doubt. I questioned myself, my choices.
I had chosen to be here, in the U.S. I came here for school, met my husband, and stayed. Where I come from, I was taught to fight for justice, speak out and up. My parents taught me that I had to fight for everyone. If one person suffers, we all suffer. You need to do something. But I think when I came here, I lost that. Life got busier and easier.

Minnesota, it's time to march again! We're bringing a #WomensWave to St. Paul on January 19, 2019. Join us!
March with Us June 30th to #FreeOurFuture
Saturday saw an outpouring of Minnesotans onto the streets of Minneapolis on an extraordinary June day. Extraordinary in that it was over 90 degrees, and extraordinary in that we had to take to the streets to protest the SEPARATION of children from their parents and the CAGING of them in ill-equipped shuttered Walmarts along our Southern border.
On June 30, we're rallying in Washington, D.C., and around the country to tell Donald Trump and his administration to stop separating kids from their parents!
Join us on for a national day of action. We are co-hosting the Minneapolis event, and are calling on the current administration, our senators, and our representatives to declare once and for all that families belong together and should not be detained.
