#WomensWave was successful in Michigan in the past- but do all women feel empowered and represented in Lansing and DC? We need to put our elected officials on watch- as we are carefully watching that our needs and wants are reflected in their legislations and actions! But we also need to center the voices and the work of community members in the most impacted and marginalized populations. Centering their wants and needs allows Women’s March, and those interested in transformative justice, to be inclusive of all. When we fight for justice and rights for the most non-normative, nonconformist and counter-hegemonic peoples, we intrinsically win justice and rights for all. Localizing our investment and efforts will allow us to amplify existing work/ spaces to build community and deepen relationships--necessary components of true transformative justice work.

Detroit is at the epicenter of extreme racial inequity highlighted by the selective economic growth investment and government oversight. The continuous battle for water to be a right with at least 17,000 families having no access to running water any given day in the city, regardless of the United Nations declaring this a human rights violation.

Detroit sits at the border of Canada, therefore subjecting its immigrants to the rampant militarization and oppression of ICE and border patrol agents, creating a heightened sense of being watched, policed and criminalized.

We won’t wait no more! Women of Detroit have done the work to keep communities surviving. We will not wait any more to thrive. We need everybody out here ready to listen, learn, and build. We need accomplices, charged to lift Detroit women’s voices in their own communities, recognizing that Detroit is both representative of and interconnected with racial and gender justice needs across the state.

***************************************************************

The mission of Women’s March is to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change. Women’s March is committed to dismantling systems of oppression through nonviolent resistance and building inclusive structures guided by self-determination, dignity and respect.

A note: Women’s March Michigan, a separate 501c3 organization is it's own entity, with it's own board and leadership, separate from Women's March national. We are committed to fighting all forms of oppression as outlined in our Unity Principles. We will not tolerate anti-Semitism, racism, misogyny, homophobia, and transphobia and we condemn these expressions of hatred in all forms.
