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.

YOU did this. YOU made this happen.

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

Women who marched together went to airports together. People who met at women’s marches came together again to say #NoMuslimBan.

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.

On February 17, 2017, we joined the call to #DivestDAPL and #DefundDAPL, encouraging members of our network to withdraw their money from banks financing the Dakota Access Pipeline.

This was our announcement, calling for divestment in the 37 days before #DayWithoutAWoman.
On March 8, 2017 (International Women’s Day) women came together across the country for #DayWithoutAWoman. You went on strike. You withheld our money from big businesses. 13 women were arrested outside Trump Int’l Hotel in NYC.

Together, we showed women’s power.

On April 13, 2017, we took action to oppose war and violence, and to demand safety and support for Syrian refugees. #WomenForSyria held vigils and resource drives in states across the country.

On May 1, 2017, we joined the @mvmt4bl #TheMajority #BeyondTheMoment coalition for May Day actions nationwide.

Check out this video from @TheMajorityBTM about it!
In July 2017, we took on the NRA, marching from #NRA2DOJ to demand an end to gun violence and the NRA’s racist fear-mongering.

Throughout the summer of 2017, we organized with our partners to defend health care, from #OurLivesOnTheLine to #HowTheACASavedMyLife.

In September 2017 we mobilized with immigrant rights groups like @UNITEDWEDREAM @CosechaMovement @IAmAnImmigrant and so many more to #DefendDACA.

In October 2017, we held the first #WomensConvention in 40 years. 5,000 of you came to Detroit to map out a plan for our future as a movement. #ReclaimingOurTime

On January 21, 2018, to commemorate the first anniversary of the Women’s March, we gathered in Las Vegas and cities across the country to channel our movement power into electoral power by registering voters and bringing our #PowerToThePolls.

On March 14, 2018, one month after the devastating Parkland shooting, the youth Women’s March activists of @WomensMarchY organized the #ENOUGH student walkouts to protest gun violence. Over 1 million students walked out in one day.

On June 28, 2018, thousands of you took to the streets and over 600 women were arrested in DC in an act of peaceful civil disobedience to protest this administration’s cruel and inhumane immigration policies. We called to #EndFamilyDetention and #AbolishICE.

Throughout September 2018, you joined us in DC for a month-long direct action to #CancelKavanaugh. We turned what had been a certain confirmation into a real fight — and we showed our power and what we were willing to do to defend survivors.

During all of October 2018, you joined us at GOTV phone banks in states across the country to encourage women voters to bring their #PowerToThePolls. We poured our full energy into the midterms.
On November 6, 2018, voter turnout broke records. We elected an entire squad of amazing women.

Our #WomensWave took the House!

We’re not even close to done. It’s not a blue wave. It’s not a pink wave.

It’s a #WomensWave and it’s flooding the streets of DC and cities across the country on January 19, 2019.
