Our members could be found as far away as Washington last weekend.
The protests on January 20 and 21 presented a profound and clear message to the Donald Trump administration: we are watching and we will stop you. PHENOM members could be found at January 20th protests and Women’s Marches across the country.
It was amazing to stand in solidarity with millions of people in the US and around the world and in opposition to the dangerous Donald Trump billionaire agenda for our country and for public higher education. This is only the beginning of our work.
We need to channel this energy into positive action! Join PHENOM at our Advocacy Day on March 1 to advocate for a high-quality, debt-free public higher education system. Register at bit.ly/PHEAD17 and then join our Facebook event here.
Here is an image from the Boston and Washington D.C. marches on January 21, followed by more pictures of PHENOM members at marches in Boston and Washington!
