Nasty Woman Support Network Travel
"On January 21, 2017 we will unite for the Women's March on Washington. We will stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country. Because women's rights are human rights."
But we know that many women across the nation who want to join us cannot due to financial constraints. That is why women from around the country are uniting to launch Nasty Women Support Network. The NWS Network’s mission is to raise funds for women who need financial assistance to attend the march. Selected women will receive a voucher to cover up to $300 of their travel expenses.
NWSN is gathering funds from now until January 7th at 11AM (eastern) when we will draw names of women who have applied to receive assistance. The more money we raise; the more women we can sponsor to attend the March! Applicants understand that they must cover any additional costs and they must provide proof of attendance to receive reimbursement. Accountability measures* are in place to ensure the attendee provides proof of attendance and is reimbursed immediately after the march. If needed, every effort will be made to match lottery winners with rooms in the DC Metro area for housing.
Our growing Host Committee Includes:
Danielle Miller Wagner
Katharine Delo Gregg
Ilisha Stier Borek
Leslie Orner Neiditz

We are so inspired and grateful for your support. We wanted to provide an update as the March on Washington is just one week from today!
So far 40 women have come together and offered financial support of over $3000 to help 25 women from around the country attend the march in Washington.
Women from Texas to New York have ensured that women from California to Colorado to Virginia will be in DC on the 21st raising her voice for the issues we all care so much about.
From sea to shining sea we are stronger together! We will post more updates in the coming weeks.
Thank you so very much!

I want to introduce you to some of the wonderful women that want to march. That want their voices heard. I know it's the holidays and we are all busy. I am! But I'm asking you a big favor. Please take 1 minute from your day and share this campaign. We have two weeks of final fundraising. We are #strongertogether and together we can get these ladies, and others, to D.C.
Real women. Real voices. Real concerns.
Thank you all so so so much for your support so far. In these dark days, your light and love shines brightly.
