March & Knit for Resistance

unnamed-71.jpg

This January 21st we will march together with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families and in solidarity with those who were most insulted, marginalized, and threatened during the election cycle - immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault. 

We will send a bold message to the Trump administration on their first day in office, and to the world, that Women Say No to War and that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.

Join the CODEPINK team to Rise ^ Love ^ Resist!

For this moment of resistance, we are supporting the PussyHat Project, which seeks to provide the people of the Women's March on Washington, DC a means to make a unique collective visual statement which will help activists be better heard, and provide people who cannot physically be on the National Mall a way to represent themselves and support women's rights. Would you like to be part of it?

If you are a knitter who wants to participate in the Women’s March on Washington D.C., but perhaps cannot attend yourself, please consider making a PINK HAT for a person who will be there. The weather in D.C. that day will be a high of 35-45° F, so hats will be practically important to keep warm. Learn more about the PussyHat Project and get instructions on how to make a hat!

Drop off or mail your hats to the PussyHat Project address or to any of the CODEPINK addresses below:

CODEPINK LA office
2010 Linden Ave
Venice, CA 90291

CODEPINK DC office
1241 Evarts Street, NE
Washington DC 20018

Use the hashtag #PussyHat on social media and tag us or send us a picture of the hat so we can put it on social media.

Many of you were part of the Knitting for Refugees Project. We thank you deeply for your support. Simple things have big impacts. Read Nancy Mancias's article on her experience in taking the items you created to refugees in Greece.

To knitting peace together,
Ann, Ariel, Farida, Jodie, Medea, Mariana, Nancy, Paki, Paula, Samira and the CODEPINK team
