On January 21, 2017, five million people in 82 countries and on all seven continents stood up with one voice. The Women's March began with one cause, women's rights, but quickly became a movement around the many issues that were hotly debated during the 2016 U.S. presidential race-immigration, health care, environmental protections, LGBTQ rights, racial justice, freedom of religion, and workers' rights, among others. In the mere 66 days between the election and inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States, 673 sister marches sprang up across the country and the world. ABRAMS Image presents Why I March to honor the movement, give back to it, and promote future activism in the same vein.

"The strength, passion, and bravery that our communities brought to the Women's March was deeply historic, and I am grateful that Why I March serves as a tribute to our power and resilience. The march was not the beginning, nor the end of our fight for freedom and collective liberation, but it sparked a fire in us that will effectively and triumphantly transform the political landscape for all of us. We are part of a powerful, intersectional, and global movement for social justice and human rights. We will continue to move forward because we can, and we will." -Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas, Executive Director at the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health
