On January 21, 2017, we organized the largest single-day protest in US history. We came together as women, femmes, and allies to speak out, and we set the stage for the resistance movement that continues today.

On January 28, 2017—just one week after the first Women’s March—we flooded airports nationwide to protest the Muslim Ban.

On January 31, 2017—just 10 days after the March—we went back to DC to voice our outrage of the nomination of Jeff Sessions. We continued our call to #StopSessions for over one year after that.
