We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. The march was the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women and minorities have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.
HEAR OUR VOICE.
Action Together Suncoast (an Indivisible Group) is committed to upholding the ideals of equity, opportunity, and justice for all.
We recognize that discrimination against any is discrimination against all; we stand proudly alongside our Muslim neighbors in Sarasota/Bradenton and the rest of Florida.
In response to anti-Muslim rallies planned across the country, we will stand up against fear and ignorance by opening doors and engaging in acts of good will.
The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us - immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse beliefs and religions including non-believers, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault - and our communities are hurting and scared. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.
In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women's March on Washington and Sister Marches across the country and around the world sent a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
