Together, we made history at the Women’s March. Now take the next step!

2017 Women's March

The Women's March in Washington, D.C., and sister marches around our country and the world were inspiring. It was a historic and vitally important day that brought together diverse people from every corner of our nation and all over the world to stand strong for women’s health, equality and economic security.

And protesters in airports and cities across the country united to stand strong against President Trump’s shameful immigration executive order.

This is undoubtedly a unique (and troubling) moment in time — a moment when the values and issues we care about most deeply are being challenged from every angle. Every day.

At the National Partnership, we get it. The Women's March put the Trump administration and the new Congress on notice, but it was only the first step.

Now, we each must do everything we can to create a continuous drumbeat for women’s rights and human rights. We must show resistance and resilience. That’s why we urge you to stand strong with us and fight back against these relentless attacks.

Here are a few ways you can stay active and help keep the momentum going. Together, we will be a tireless voice for the values we cherish and the policies that promise equality, dignity and economic security for all women and families.

Airplane icon Contact Congress
President Trump’s cabinet is shaping up to be the least experienced and most anti-woman in our nation’s history. And our opponents in Congress are wasting no time introducing dangerous legislation. We need you to speak out regularly to tell your elected officials to stand against people and policies that would harm women and families — and, instead, to stand for policies that would promote economic security and equal opportunity. We will regularly update the most urgent actions to take. Visit the National Partnership’s homepage.

Pen icon Sign a pledge and petition to stand strong
The first 100 days of a presidency can shape the next four years. Pledge to fight back during the Trump administration’s first 100 days (and beyond). And then urge the Trump administration to stop peddling alternative facts. Together, we’ll speak out against extremist politicians and their dangerous anti-woman, anti-worker agenda.
