More than 1,000 CWA women and men came to Washington, D.C., on Jan. 21 to stand up for justice and dignity for all. They joined a crowd that grew to more than half a million people, rallying near the U.S. Capitol then marching to the White House.

Activists also came together in hundreds of cities across the U.S. and around the world, holding rallies and actions, and pledging to stand together for as long as it takes.

CWA President Chris Shelton told CWAers, “Today is the first day of our fight, and we will win.”
