This weekend, millions of people across the country came together to stand up against hate and stand up for equality. What began as a Women’s March on Washington spread to cities across the world. From Los Angeles to Paris to even Antarctica, these record breaking numbers remind us of how strong people power can truly be.
While we have a tough fight ahead of us, the March was a much needed sign that millions of people across the country are ready to stand and fight for justice. Greenpeace volunteers were among them, marching in sister Marches across the country, to fight for women’s rights and protect all communities from environmental injustice.
The March saw so many important causes coming together. People came in solidarity for women, but they also proved once again that these fights are not isolated. You could see just by looking at the signs being waved in the crowd – our fights are tied together and this movement is intersectional.

Women have been at the forefront of this fight for years– every day, women are standing up in their communities and fighting to protect them from climate change. This March was just the beginning of us coming together to build an intersectional movement against hate and the dangerous rhetoric and policies of the new administration. Now it’s time to take the power of that march and turn it into action.
