“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world...would do this, it would change the earth.” - William Faulkner
To every student who participated in yesterday’s Walk Out:
We heard you.
We saw you.
We believe in you.
We will fight with you.
For all of us.
We will not give up.
We are so inspired and moved by the powerful protests across the country yesterday. To the students, our future leaders, thank you for your courage! You are making a difference!
And an additional thank you to the teachers and parents who supported the students yesterday and every day.
There are a lot of important engagements coming up in the next two months. Show up with Women's March Minnesota for our February and March events and show your support for women's rights.Read More
