Send women vets to #WomensMarch
We are American veterans and we are calling on our fellow veterans and allies to assemble and join the #WomensMarch on Washington DC, Saturday, Jan 21st. In this transformative time, we are seeing the high resonance and importance of veterans commitment to join important battles of coalition and community.
Our team consists of women, a Muslim, a mother, veterans, and proud Americans. And Donald Trump's rhetoric and behavior has inspired me to take action. For over a year on the campaign trail, Donald Trump has attacked women, immigrants, Muslims, Native Americans, people with disabilities, veterans with PTSD, and so many other communities. He has been shameless in his misogyny, sexual assault, and violent attitudes. And now he's managed to successfully bully his way into the White House.
It is the moral duty of all veterans and Americans to stand with women and march on Washington. Our mission is to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and her people. This means our mission is to march alongside the tens of thousands of women and other underrepresented people on inauguration weekend in intersectional solidarity, and tell Donald Trump loudly and clearly that women's rights are human rights.
The funds we raise on this page will go towards providing transportation, lodging, and other supplies for the brave veterans leading our contingent of veterans and allies. Donald Trump has attacked women, ridiculed sexual assault, and perpetuated rape culture. As such, our first priority is to send women veterans to the front lines in this historic event in Washington. Additional funds will be used to send other veterans supporting our leaders.
We'll update this page as the event draws nearer and as we hit milestones. Our first goal is to send 5 veterans to DC.
We will also be posting updates on this Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/378807382469468
Please share this GoFundMe on social media, and stand with veterans so that we can fight for women's rights and the rights of all who are oppressed by Trump and his policies.
Every day that passes is a step closer toward undoing years of hard work and progress. And with Trump’s inauguration only 37 days away, we must be ready to fight back.
Thank you for standing with women and women veterans.

One of the largest mass-mobilizations in modern history is just two days away, and we're trying to send as many additional veterans to the #WomensMarch as possible.
It would mean the world if you gave us one final boost by sharing this page (or use VetsMarch.com) on social media with your friends.
This is a crucially important crossroads for American democracy, and we have a moral duty to take action.
Again, thank you for everything.
Now, I have two requests for you.
1) Please share this page on Facebook, Twitter, or email and encourage your peers to make a contribution if they can.
2) If you or a veteran you know wants to travel to join the #WomensMarch on DC, please fill out this Google form in it's entirety: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf9U-qSCtnhu59dZUyGKwifQ4Fk38OTw75WttY6hA9XaN-M1w/viewform?c=0&w=1
Thank you for standing with us in this fight,
Pam, Nate, and Mickiela
I'm a female Navy vet who will be meeting an old friend and shipmate to march together on January 21st. We haven't seen each other since 1993, but we are coming back together to stand up for our rights, those of our daughters, and all other veterans, whether they be male or female!! ALSO bringing several thousand of my fellow Floridians with me!! ✊ Can't wait!!
As a woman PTSD veteran who has earned 2 Honorable Discharges, a military sexual trauma survivor, a senior citizen, a disabled person, a mother who has raised 2 special needs sons, and a caregiver for my WWII Veteran dad, I would like to attend from NJ. Is there any help for me so I can stand up to Donald Trump's administration of hate for my brothers and sisters who can not?
SOOOOO WISH I COULD AFFORD TO GO, I WILL BE THERE IN HEART, THOUGH. WE NEED TO STOP HIM AND STAY ON HIM . THIS IS OUR COUNTRY, NOT TRUMP COUNTRY AND HIS WANNA BE GANG MEMBERS AKA KKK, BIGOT, RAPIST, WOMANIZERS, RACIST, CON ARTIST, SCAMMERS. NOT FOR US ONLY WHAT THEY CAN PUT IN THEIR BANK ACCOUNTS ALL OVER THE WORLD. THEY THINK WE ARE STUPID. WHEN KARMA FINALLY COMES, I GOT MY POPCORN READY AND FRONT ROW SEATS TO THE MOVIE. GOD DOES NOT LIKE UGLY. WOMEN UNITE, DO NOT EVER ALLOW HIM TO RULE, EVER, NEVER. UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL.
I thought I'd left this already. I am disturbed that although I've repeatedly requested to know whom we sent no one has responded. I hope this was legit.
I'm disturbed that I've repeatedly requests updates and there haven't been any. I was one of the first four contributors and I really, really hope you used this money to send Vets to the march. If so, please tell us whom you sent.
I am a WAC veteran and will be there. I would like to join the group if anyone can tell me where you are meeting. I am coming in on a bus from Georgia.
