PLEDGE OF LIBERATION

We believe that all issues are women’s issues—from racial justice to environmental justice to disability rights to Indigenous sovereignty. Nothing demonstrates this more than the devastating impact of the #LicenseToDiscriminate Executive Action and the House vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act on women and femmes of all backgrounds, nationwide.

For 100 days, this administration and leaders of Congress have used tactics to try and overwhelm us, by enacting harmful and destructive Executive Orders and legislation in rapid, overlapping bursts. They mean to divide us into groups with conflicting priorities. We will not let it happen. Our resistance movements are more focused than ever, we know these issues are interrelated. The attacks on queer and trans people, on disabled people, on Black, brown and Indigenous people, on immigrants, on poor people, on Muslim and Jewish people, the attacks on health care and the environment, the rendering of violence against women as a pre-existing condition—these are all one assault on our fundamental rights to live with dignity, autonomy and liberty.

On Monday, May 8, legislators returning to their home offices need to hear what we think about the House voting to legalize discrimination and make us all “pre-existing” conditions. Women’s March, with the ACLU’s People Power, United We Dream, Hollaback!, National Lawyers Guild, UltraViolet, The Gathering for Justice, and other national and local partners, will reaffirm our commitment to each other and our shared liberation through action, exactly six months after Election Day.

In solidarity with our families, friends, neighbors, coworkers and communities, we collectively stand for dignity, justice and freedom in the face of attacks on our health care, our identities and our lives. When one community is harmed, all of our communities are harmed. We are all part of one movement, and we pledge allegiance to the survival and liberation of all people.
