Keep resisting! The ACA vote is expected to take place later today. The video here was taken Thursday at a march in DC to oppose AHCA. Video by Alejandro Alvarez (@aletweetsnews on Twitter) #SaveTheACA
The Women's March is deeply disturbed by the shocking number of missing Black and Latina girls in the Washington, DC area — and by the fact that these numbers are not new. We call on all members of Congress to demand that the Justice Department invest resources into investigating these cases immediately. We came out in droves for our Muslim sisters and brothers, for refugees and immigrants, for women as a whole. We ask our supporters to do so again for these missing girls, for our daughters. If we do not take action to address the mass disappearance of Black and Latina girls, we cannot claim to stand for all women. We cannot claim to be true to our commitment to justice, safety, security for all. We are committed to support, advocate for and uplift the work of local organizations that have long been dedicated to finding and caring for these girls, and for all missing youth — including trans and gender nonconforming youth. We will not rest until they are brought back safely. While some are just now turning their attention to the issue of the disappearance of girls of color, this crisis is far from new, and it's on the rise. We will not rest until all women and girls and femmes are able to live free from violence. #FindOurGirls

"I want to see us fighting the fight for all women — women of color, our LGBTQ sisters, our Muslim sisters. I want to see millions of us marching out there for our rights, and I want to see us out there marching for the rights of women like Dajerria Becton, who was body slammed by a cop while she was in her swimsuit for simply existing as a young, vocal, black girl." -@saintrecords in her April/May 2017 cover story interview with @jamiaawilson for @bust_magazine : @nadyawasylko

We chose today's #SignOfResistance by @lexx_valdez in response to all of the attempts by Congress to roll back our rights on the Hill this week. Stay watchful. Stay informed. Keep calling. Keep resisting.
Here are 3 things happening today alone:
-The House is voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with the American Health Care Act, which, if implemented, would be disastrous for millions of Americans.
-We're on to day 4 of the Gorsuch confirmation hearings for SCOTUS. (Many Senate Dems are moving to filibuster the vote.)
-The Senate is voting on the future of online privacy by using the Congressional Review Act to roll back our online privacy.
If you want to know more, follow these hashtags: #SaveTheACA#StopGorsuch#SaveBroadbandPrivacy.

2 weeks ago today, we showed the world that the rise of the woman = the rise of the nation. The photo here was taken at a #DayWithoutAWoman rally in Carbondale, Illinois. Carbondale and the rest of Southern Illinois, keep showing up! cc @womensmarchillinois#WhyIResist
IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A white poster with blue marker text reads "The rise of a woman is the rise of a nation." Below that, in red marker text, it reads "#DayWithoutAWoman."

Today's #SignOfResistance is by Cullen Boudreaux (@craftbeercullen). The House is voting on Thursday to repeal the #AffordableCareAct and replace it with the #AmericanHealthCareAct, which, if implemented, would be disastrous for millions of Americans. Call your House representative now to make sure Congress opposes the #AHCA: (202) 224-3121. #HealthCare should not be a congressional bargaining chip. #SaveTheACA
IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A vertical postcard in the red, white and blue colors of the American flag, with stars and stripes appearing on it, reads "Everyone deserves healthcare. Save the ACA Affordable Care Act."

This is resistance! On Monday, a group of women dressed in white bonnets and red robes—in homage to Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel, The Handmaid's Tale—showed up to the Texas Senate in protest of two anti-choice bills under consideration. #CreativeResistance#WhyIResist#FightBackTX#SB415#TXlege (Photo taken by @alexagarciaditta of @naraltx)

The House is voting on Thursday to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with the American Health Care Act, which, if implemented, would be disastrous for millions of Americans. Tune into a Twitter chat at 7pm EST with #CripTheVote co-partners Gregg Beratan, Andrew Pulrang, and Alice Wong to hear more about how this will impact the disability community!

On 3/20, after Comey confirmed that there is an ongoing investigation into the ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, @prochoiceamerica called for a delay on the #SCOTUS nomination. We join NARAL in asking you to call your senator. New Yorkers in particular, be sure to call Chuck Schumer. As Minority Leader, Schumer has a unique opportunity to find a way to delay the nomination.

Tennessee police shot and killed #RodneyHess, a Black man with bipolar disorder last week, and no one is talking about it. Police killed more people in the US in January and February 2017 than in any month of 2016. And again, no one is talking about this. #BlackLivesMatter
