Members and friends of United Christian Church of Austin were happy and honored to march side by side with our sisters and neighbors from all across Texas to "pray with our feet" for a more just world for women and for all of God's children. Here are some pictures from the event.
"The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us–women, immigrants of all statuses, those with diverse religious faiths particularly Muslim, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native and Indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, the economically impoverished and survivors of sexual assault. On Saturday, January 21 we will unite for the Women’s March on Austin (as our allies march in other cities) . We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country."
