Hi

The Women's March on Washington for Jan. 21   womensmarch.com  is a national project meant to raise the activism level of progressive and constructive politics going forward.

Many prominent national groups are "partners," today including N.O.W., the N.A.A.C.P., A.I.M., and (I'm pleased to say), Psychologists for Social Responsibility (PsySR).

As of the moment, my count is 244 "partner" groups, and the number is growing; I'm pleased to say that one that will be added is the "Social Accountability Work Group," which represents a client/survivor advocacy involving "disability justice."

Of course, embracing activism does not fully reach to the inner souls of creative groups with strong advocacies against oppression - that, for those who "act mad" and for folks engaging racial, gender, and LGBTQ concerns, amongst others, comes more as a "work in progress."
