En Solidarité / In Solidarity / En Solidaridad
In honor of hundreds of years of work and rallying for women’s rights and suffrage, workers’ rights, and human rights, along with the knowledge that dedication to equality and justice such as in these movements is what America is all about, I am attending the NYC edition of one of the dozens of rallies happening today. I’ll be at the Rally For Women’s Health standing up for myself and all the other women, men, children, and families nationwide who will be affected by the recent House vote to bar all federal funding (FYI: federal funding already excludes subsidy of abortion services) from Planned Parenthood, and in solidarity with the teachers/workers of Wisconsin whose rights have recently been so drastically compromised.
O, MY MY - yes!
