Defund the Police
Women’s March is in solidarity with The Movement for Black Lives in their call to #DefundPolice. Defunding the police is a feminist issue because black, poor, immigrant and undocumented women are disproportionately targeted, abused and murdered by police. Women’s Marchers across the country have been sharing information with their networks as a means to contribute meaningful conversation. We channel our efforts into sustained organizing in order to bring about the new world we so desperately need.
WOMEN’S MARCH IS UNITED IN DEMONSTRATING OUR SOLIDARITY WITH THE CALL TO #DEFUNDPOLICE:
