Women’s health is threatened under the current administration, so we are marching the streets of LA for the second time: using our voices in solidarity with women and people all across the world to showcase our values and what we believe in.
Healthcare is a Human Right
We believe that all people have the right to access to good and affordable healthcare. Cutting funding and threatening organizations and programs like Planned Parenthood and Medicaid that assist people in all walks of life get access to the healthcare they need is wrong.
Your Own Advocate
We say all the time that we want to inspire young people to be their own health advocates. We aim to give people the tools they need to self-check and really get to know what is “normal” for their bodies. We also strive to provide education on breast health and breast cancer prevention in order for people to live preventative lifestyles and take their health into their own hands.
But self-advocacy does not end with the self-check. In order to truly be our own health advocates, we need to support systems that care about everyone’s health and protest those trying to slash such systems.
As a non-profit organization who is rooted in caring about people, we have a responsibility to use our privilege and take part in dismantling these oppressive and toxic structures that are so rampant in this country. We do not tolerate racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia, ableism or any other ideology which is situated in hatred of any persons based on their identities.
We believe in the acceptance, equality, and fair treatment of all peoples. We do not discriminate. Love is at the core of our organization. We march in solidarity with any and all people who are marginalized or threatened by the current administration.
This year, we put our heads together and made our own signs for the march. Feel free to download, print them out and use them as you march. They are sized for 20×6 – adjust as needed. Links below!
