The new year is here, bringing Republican control in Washington that is already threatening rights across the nation. As part of the DWMC’s commitment to democratic principles and the human rights of all, we are supporting these local organizing efforts. We invite you to join us at these rallies. Working together, we can effectively defend our community and nation against sexism, racism and religious bigotry.
