WOMEN'S MARCH & Tucson Solidarity Rally

Sue Lenaerts and I were disappointed to learn we'd miss the Women's March on Washington on January 21, 2017. We have been to every Republican counter inaugural since Nixon. Imagine our excitement to find out Tucson--where we live part time--as well as 300 other places worldwide are holding Sister Marches. We are aware that nationally there is an outpouring of protests that has never been seen for any one event. The unknown of the future administration has caused an outpouring of emotions that has united untold numbers in protest in support of what the future might hold.

Such outrage, fear and determination is bringing us together in solidarity to show that we will not allow our long, hard battles for equality in every area to be rolled back. Please check out the information below and help make the March a success. Phoenix will also be having a March.

(Thank you, Jennifer Hudson, for withdrawing from Inaugural entertainment in solidarity with your LGBT fans.)
