Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation was been devastating for women, survivors, communities of color, and so many more across America. It ushered in a reckoning that echoes far beyond him. The fight against all those who want to keep women small, silent, and controlled, has barely begun.
The small but fierce Women’s March team was on the ground in Washington D.C. for the five weeks from when the Kavanaugh hearings began until the final Senate vote. We met with Senators, disrupted hearings, and organized multiple record-setting mass mobilizations. We invested in the leadership of women and femmes by holding direct action and self defense trainings and by sponsoring state leaders to come to D.C. to lobby their Senators in person.
The Women’s March #CancelKavanaugh campaign mobilized over 10,000 people to take action in D.C. On October 6th, 2018, we flooded the steps of the U.S. Capitol, dissented during the Senate vote, and marched up the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court to reclaim it for ourselves.
Our movement is only getting stronger. We have to succeed; we are fighting for our lives. Over the last month, we’ve had tens of thousands of women, survivors, and allies with us in the streets, and millions have been with us over the last two years.
Women —and especially women of color — are voting, we are running for office, and we are organizing in numbers large enough to overturn every last remnant of the Trump Agenda. We can’t do that without your support.
