As authoritarian lawmakers and legislatures seek to criminalize immigrants, sexuality, gender expression, Blackness, homelessness, religious freedom, and the teaching of vital history, this country never has seen such a blatant abuse of power against virtually every group of people at the same time. We The People is a movement composed of advocates, mobilizers, and community leaders who are tired of being told what books they can read, what words they can or can’t say, how they can express themselves, and what they can do with their own bodies. Basic constitutional rights are under attack, and We The People cannot stay silent.
In conjunction with the Ft. Lauderdale march, advocates across the nation have been hosting local companion We The People events. The following three take place tomorrow:
Sunday, July 2nd
COLUMBIA, SC: Rally and march at SC Statehouse at 11:00 am EDT
