Kuster Statement on Attending the Women’s March
(Washington, DC) –Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) released the following statement on attending the Women’s March in Washington, DC:
“Today I am standing in solidarity with hundreds of thousands of Americans to—in one strong voice—denounce the politics of division and hate. It’s up to all of us across the nation to send a clear message that we demand a society built on the values of inclusivity and acceptance. We demand that women are paid the same as men and have full reproductive rights, that every American has access to quality, affordable healthcare, that all our children receive a quality education, that our environment is protected for future generations, and we demand policies that benefit the many, not the few.
“I’m encouraged and heartened by the collective resolve of the many people standing up for what they believe. We should all strive to create an America where everyone has a place at the table; women, people of color, people of all faiths, members of the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault, and the countless others who have felt marginalized. I’m proud of the thousands of Granite Staters both here in Washington and in New Hampshire who are defending the values they hold dear. Though we may face challenges, our shared determination will allow us to overcome any hurdle.”
