Women's March Pledge of Liberation Demonstrations
The final action in Women’s March’s 10 Actions / 100 Days Campaign, Pledge of Liberation, harnesses the power of cross-movement collaboration. Over the course of the next week, we are mobilizing our communities to sign a Pledge of Liberation—a declaration of allegiance to each other.
Together, activists around the country from every movement sector will unite on May 8 and hold demonstrations at in-district congressional offices and the offices of other elected officials. Women’s March, in partnership with ACLU People Power, United We Dream, Hollaback!, The Gathering for Justice, the National Lawyers Guild and other national and local partners, will take our resistance directly to our members of Congress. We will send a clear message that we will rise up, together, against attacks on our health care, our identities, and our religious freedoms. We no longer accept hollow reforms or compromises that help some of our communities but harm others.We will hold demonstrations in solidarity with communities around the country and collectively fight for dignity, justice and freedom. We are all part of one movement, and we are not only stronger and more powerful together—our unity is how we survive as people, organizations, and movements.
We cannot pledge allegiance to an administration that oppresses and harms us. Instead, we pledge allegiance to the liberation of all people. We pledge allegiance to each other.
Just as we pledge our allegiance to each other, we will remind our members of Congress of their allegiance to us—the voters. We ask that this allegiance come in the form of real resistance to this administration's efforts to divide and harm us. This means, among many things, protecting our health care, voting against attempts to further legalize discrimination and violence, and voting for a federal budget that reflects the values five million people marched for on January 21, 2017Join a demonstration near you or register your own event on 5/8.
