Sign the Pledge of Liberation.

On January 21, 2017, five million of us came together to raise our voices in unity at Women’s Marches around the globe. That was just the beginning. We have all spent the past 100 days proving the power of our collective voice, from the #NoBanNoWall actions at airports around the country to A Day Without a Woman, the Tax March, the Science March, People’s Climate March and going #BeyondTheMoment on May Day.

That was the first 100 days. Today, we recommit ourselves to resistance work—and to each other. 

The final action in Women’s March’s 10 Actions / 100 Days Campaign, Pledge of Liberation, harnesses the power of cross-movement collaboration. Over the course of the next week, we are mobilizing our communities to sign a Pledge of Liberation—a declaration of allegiance to each other.

We cannot pledge allegiance to an administration that oppresses and harms us. Instead, we pledge allegiance to the liberation of all people. We pledge allegiance to each other.

Just as we pledge our allegiance to each other, we will remind our members of Congress of their allegiance to us—the voters. We ask that this allegiance come in the form of real resistance to this administration's efforts to divide and harm us. This means, among many things, protecting our health care, voting against attempts to further legalize discrimination and violence, and voting for a federal budget that reflects the values five million people marched for on January 21, 2017
