On January 21, the Women’s March will unite communities across our nation to rise up against hate, intolerance, and acts of violence affecting so many people. Survivors of sexual violence have been a specific target and especially affected. The words we live by here at BARCC—dedicated to healing, advocating for change—feel more potent now than ever. In that spirit, the BARCC community will come together in solidarity by joining the Boston Women’s March for America—a march for everyone. We want you to gather with us and get ready for the marches in Boston and Washington, DC! Read more at www.barcc.org/blog/details/marching-for-america-in-boston-and-beyond.
