Coast to coast, country to country, people stood against sexism, racism, homophobia, xenophobia and hatred at the Women’s Marches. These events were more than just demonstrations. They were about solidarity — as women, people of color, LGBTQ folks, immigrants, people of all religions and people of all incomes. And they were about showing the vibrant strength our communities gain from that unity. An estimated 3.3 million people delivered this message of solidarity — too many for newly elected President Donald Trump to ignore.

The marches may be over, but the fight is just beginning. The federal government is now in the hands of extremist lawmakers who have tried for years to shut down Planned Parenthood health centers. If they get their way, 2.5 million patients per year will lose access to care at Planned Parenthood health centers. But if all of us who marched on January 21 fight for our health and rights tomorrow and every day after, we will win.
To build on this unprecedented moment of resistance, we're launching Defenders: a core group of supporters who have said they'll give their time to defend Planned Parenthood, the health services they provide, and the people who rely on them — in what just may be the fight of our lives.
