Wow. The numbers are still coming in but an estimated 12,000 people marched in solidarity for women’s rights and human rights today in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. There were sister marches throughout the state including in Tulsa. Within the numbers there was such a mix of people, all walks, all kinds, all corners – coming together as one human family.
Through it all, UUs and All Souls members and friends managed to find each other and came together, signs up, voices in sync.
Women’s Rights are Human Rights.
What do we want? Equality. When do we want it? Now!
Hear us Roar.
Today, millions joined forces for a better world and pushed the strong message of solidarity.
We will not back down. We will not be silenced. We will not be erased.
We will stand up for each other.
We’ll continue to share stories of why our members marched and what we will be doing to continue the fight for justice and equality for all!
One way to do this is to have compassion and to increase our understanding on how to bring compassion as we continue to have dialog. The work has already started and continues. Check out OCCJ’s Trialogue Series: The Struggle for Compassion starting February 5.
I was so proud to march among thousands of my brothers and sisters.
More to come.
In love beyond belief,
