This was live on Facebook during the #womensmarch on Saturday, and I'm sharing it again because it brings so much joy to my heart for my whole family to be marching with the rest of our amazing city in unity for love, acceptance and justice for all humans. I think this legitimately was the happiest I've ever been. #thisiswhatdemocracylookslike
My sign says:
"I stand in the face of injustice." #positivepropaganda
I am smiling in this picture. I just experienced an incredibly hopeful and overwhelmingly positive peaceful protest, and got to share the experience with my mom, aunts, and fiancé. The march gave me something tangible I could do and look forward to in the then-unknown face of a Trump presidency. Now it's Monday, I'm on my way back to Seattle, and I am So. Fucking. Angry. Didn't even take a full day in office for that administration to start tearing down the things that are important to me. (Thanks for the latest freeze of EPA grants and contracts btw- I didn't really want my spouse to have a viable career after finishing her PhD). I plan on staying angry. And getting shit done. You with me? #bitchesgetshitdone#icantwiththis#pantsuitnation
The march was a fantastic start now it's time to keep the momentum going! 10 Actions for the first 100 Days starts now! Action one is to write a letter to your Senators and let them know what matters to you most and how you are going to continue to fight for it in the days, weeks, and months to come.

My highlight of yesterday’s Women’s March was dancing to “I Will Survive”
with a group of women and young girls in Monterey, CA. Some were too young to know the words, but all had the beat down pat! Gloria Gaynor, we will survive. We will thrive!
I am who I am because of this woman. She taught me to be bold, loud, bossy, and unapologetic. It is because of her that I fight for what I believe in, for what is right, and for what is just. Matching with her was one of the most powerful moments of my life.
