CONGRESSWOMAN SHARICE DAVIDS HEADLINES KANSAS CITY WOMEN'S MARCH 2019 DESPITE SPONSOR DROPOUTS CITING CONCERNS OF ANTISEMITISM!!!
Today's local lady protest was moved indoors because of arctic weather conditions and has yet to answer controversy about the national affiliation.
In fairness, check the link to their event page and here's what they hope to accomplish in their own words . . .
"On January 19th, 2019 THE WOMEN'S MARCH (AND THE MEN AND CHILDREN WHO STAND WITH THEM) OF KANSAS CITY will raise their voices in solidarity with those all over the country to demand equality for ALL humans at the 2019 Women’s March Kansas City. Bring Your Hearts, Bring Your Signs, Bring Your Passion, Bring Your Voices, And Bring Your Marching Shoes. We encourage groups to come and walk for their causes. Are You Ready?
"Over the past year, basic rights for women, immigrants, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, the religious and nonreligious, people of color and even Mother Earth have struggled to survive under the weight of the current administration. America’s First Amendment has been challenged, and healthcare for millions has been threatened. We must stand together to demand and defend our rights. Let your voice echo throughout Kansas City and show the world that red, white and blue are colors of tolerance."
So far no local media outlet has bothered to present a clear picture of the march that is slated to host Congress lady Sharice Davids along with Mayor Sly and Council ladies Jolie Justice and Alisia Canady.
Remember that the Democratic Party has dropped their sponsorship.
The Southern Poverty Law Center quietly abandoned their sponsorship as well.
And progressive group "Emily's List" is out, too.
For those who have missed the controversy regarding the march, it's mostly focused on national leaders connected to Minister Louis Farrakhan.
