On January 22, 2017, a movement known as the Women’s March On Washington turned into a global protest of historical proportions.

1) The Women’s March on Washington was the largest global protest against the inauguration of a ruler in world history.
2) The Women’s March was inclusive of all people that felt compelled to protest and insist we “leave the world a better place.”

What could cause a massive movement like this? It was striking how many multi-generation protesters had boots on the ground. Not only did mothers-daughters march, but many grandmothers-daughters-grandaughters marched. Why? The resounding response — “our children’s children! We want to leave the world a better place.”

As it turns out, mother’s instincts about Donald Trump were correct. Within days of being elected, The Donald dictated actions that will harm more children than any President in history.

Things that kill and maim kids: the Dakota Pipeline, repealing the Affordable Care Act, withdrawing from TPP, withdrawing from the Paris Treaty, refusing children refugees from countries we bombed, de-funding International Planned Parenthood… every executive order the President has signed. In addition, censoring the Department of the Interior, USDA and the EPA, etc.

Boys, perhaps it’s time we listen to what our mother tells us?
