12 Powerful Images From The #WomenDisobey March

Over the past few weeks, people across the country have been gripped by the shocking discovery that ICE (Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement) has been separating immigrant families at the U.S. Border and sending children to detention centers. In the wake of this news, many civil rights organizations have been holding protests and marches in support of the families affected by these policies. One such group, The Women’s March, called for a day of civil disobedience on Thursday, July 27th in Washington, D.C. to stand up to the government agencies responsible for this and to call for change.

On their website, Women’s March states that their mission is to “harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change”. Previously, the group has organized events like the 2017 and 2018 Women’s Marches (from which their name comes from), the “A Day Without Women” demonstration, and various events aimed at empowering women in cities around the country.

Thursday’s #WomenDisobey protest is yet another example of the power that this group possesses. More than 1,000 women and allies gathered in D.C. to listen to several activists speak as well as participate in a blockade of the Department of Justice, a march through the streets of the Capitol, and a sit-in at the Hart Senate Office Building. Political figures such as Senator Tammy Duckworth and Representative Pramila Jayapal, activist Linda Sarsour, and actress Susan Sarandon were just some of the high-profile women in attendance.

Using the hashtags #AbolishICE, #EndFamilyDetention, and #WomenDisobey on social media platforms, protesters have been sharing compelling photos and videos from the day’s activities. Check out some of the most inspiring images from the protest below.
