*Text of the call-and-response pledge we took at the end of the march: "I pledge to join the fight. To reach out to my friends and neighbors. To act as part of an organization. To do work. To take risks. I may feel scared. I may feel discouraged. I pledge to do it anyway. For our planet. For our future. For women everywhere. For myself. Because I am powerful. And a powerful life is what I deserve."
