Long and glorious list this week. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that this weekend is pretty significant with the inauguration. What you should also know is that on Saturday, insane crowds are expected for the Women’s March on Washington, a “women-led movement bringing together people of all genders, ages, races, cultures, political affiliations and backgrounds in our nation’s capital on January 21, 2017, to affirm our shared humanity and pronounce our bold message or resistance and self-determination”. For those that cannot attend the Washington march, there are many concurrent sister-marches also taking place in other major cities. With Martin Luther King Day being this week, I think it especially important to recognize the importance and significance of non-violent protest. It took a lot of work to organize this event, and to come to agreement on the guiding purpose and principles, especially when you have so many groups and passions brought to the table. This list of contributors, those that organize the sister marches, YOU if you plan to participate on Saturday in any capacity… all Natural Born World-Shakers in my book. I’ll see some of you in Chicago! #WCW
