This Saturday, January 20th, humans who believe in equality for all genders, races, income levels, etc, will gather to show solidarity against the forces that threaten that belief. The Chicago Women's March will begin at 9 am at Congress Boulevard and Columbus Drive, with a rally that is scheduled to begin at 11 am, and the march at 12:30 pm. Chicago Tribune columnist Heidi Stevens beautifully summarized the reasons for marching this weekend. Check out her article here. So get your walking shoes, clever posters, and as a male high school soccer coach once told my team, "make sure to tighten those bra straps today girls!" I'll see you out there, and I've gathered a few marching songs to get us in the spirit of la résistance. Find more information at womens121marchonchicago.org.
