WHY I MARCH

  1. Because students in my urban placement were scared the day after the election
  2. Because someone yelled "F*ck you, faggots" at the Allies on my campus while they were chalking
  3. Because a customer thought it was ok to aggressively disrespect immigrant communities and diminish foreign language education while in my line at Wegmans
  4. Because full time caretakers (parents or professionals) deserve respect
    One of the tenets of the March that speaks most powerfully to me
  5. Because Betsy DeVos cannot be allowed to enforce an unregulated brand of school choice that will leave underserved kids behind
  6. Because leaders need to respect all the people they lead
