Happy one year Anniversary of the Women’s March! Last year’s marches were massively successful here in North Dakota and around the globe. The Women’s March sparked an energy that continues to this day, from defeating Trumpcare to unexpected electoral wins to #MeToo to TimesUp to historic numbers of women running for office.
The actions by the Trump-Pence administration have created a backlash, and are sparking a movement. In 2018, this movement will only grow stronger. 2018 will be a pivotal year for women's health and women's rights; and women will be a potent political force fighting for the world we want.

Donald Trump and Mike Pence have spent the last year pushing laws and policies to control our bodies, take away our rights, and block access to health care. No wonder we are seeing the rise of the largest grassroots movement in a generation. Every time they attack, women stand stronger.
And we will not stop until every woman, individual, person of color, immigrant, LGBTQ person. and others being targeted by the Trump-Pence administration can control their body and their life.
