Marching for Equality and Justice in January

On January 21, 2017, women will march in Washington, D.C.

All across our great nation, in cities and towns, women and men, millennials and seniors, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, gay, lesbian, and transgender people, people from every economic class and background, people of all faiths, will be marching with them.

Why is it important to march? Marching is an expression of our commitment to the ideals and values of these “United” States.

About The Author

Carlynne McDonnell's picture

Author, lecturer and Huffington Post columnist Carlynne McDonnell has been a passionate and outspoken proponent of social justice and equality for over twenty five years.  She has worked in fields considered non-traditional for women and has personally seen and been on the receiving end of inappropriate and unequal/inequitable behavior.

She has contributed to MariaShriver.com, The Grindstone, E-Harmony.com and has been interviewed on NPR, morning talk and College and University radio.

Carlynne has presented workshops nationally on women’s equality and effective communication, leadership development, mentoring, and self-value all designed to educate and empower women to seek the best for themselves and others.

She has served on Equal Pay panels, presented at the UN’s Commission on the Status of Women meeting, the National Conference of College Women Student Leaders, the National Collegiate Leadership Conference women’s organizations, multiple colleges and universities, and for the US Marine Corp.

Carlynne has a Master’s in Public Policy and has been working in the corporate, education and non-profit worlds for over 30 years.

Working on the docks in Galveston and then at an East Coast Railroad, Carlynne was the recipient of and witness to discrimination and sexual harassment, pay inequality, and disrespect for women. As a result of these experiences, she became active in the quest for equality by participating in women’s organization that sought change.

Not satisfied with the status quo or the lack of movement to achieving real equality, Carlynne created Change in Our Lifetime, Inc. to push for education and action and women’s equality.

An articulate and passionate activist, she wrote “The Every Woman’s Guide to Equality” to create a larger platform for change beyond equality’s current state, and for achieving real equality for women.

Becoming Elders in Our Evolving World

by Lynne Iser | Elder-Activists.org and Pachamama Alliance

There are real opportunities to repair our world. What it takes is an enormous effort, the work of all people—especially us the elders. As elders we have the common sense, wisdom, resources, and the inner urge to leave a legacy that we can be proud of.
