Women’s March on Nairobi in Solidarity with Women’s March on Washington, Jan. 21 2017 @ Karura Forest
PS: this march is inclusive and all are welcome.
On 21 January 2017 Nairobi will march in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Washington D.C. and across the world.
The recent elections in the United States have shown how real the threat is to our collective rights and liberties. We march together for the protection of our rights, our safety, our families, our health and the health of our planet – recognising that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our society.
We stand together as one, for the rights of women, black, minority, ethnic and refugee groups, immigrants of all statuses, those with diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, people with disabilities, the economically impoverished, and survivors of sexual assault, recognising that an attack on one, is an attack on us all.
This march is the first step of a progressive alliance across the world, built by individuals, groups and communities who together will be the voice of a new global consciousness.
