together we rise
This weekend marks the one year anniversary of the biggest day of protests in American history. Just writing that gives me the chills and brings tears to my eyes! To all you fellow marchers, and to those who march in spirit, protest outside your senators offices, donate time and money to worthy organizations, write letters, make phone calls, stand up for what is right and just, and are an everyday force of love in the world ~ Together We Rise!
Global Fund for Women's mission statement:
'We are a global champion for the human rights of women and girls. We use our powerful networks to find, fund, and amplify the courageous work of women who are building social movements and challenging the status quo. By shining a spotlight on critical issues, we rally communities of advocates who take action and invest money to empower women.'

P.S. I'll be marching in my sister's town of Hartford, CT this Saturday. If you happen to be there too and see a mermaid poster, come say hello!
