Why I March –
The advocate implored me to “Tell me what’s going on and we’ll keep you and your children safe”. I knew she believed that but even then I knew it was a promise that she would not be able to keep – I worked in “the system” – and though I “knew better” I also believed in the system I worked in; I believed in it so much that I trusted it with my precious children… Although I was allowed to keep my children, I lost my daughter by misplacing my faith in the system.
I march to call attention to the system that’s harming the children it was created to protect.
I march in solidarity with my soul sisters & our supporters who are the only ones who understand my heartbreak & heartache.
I march in memory of those we’ve lost along the way, in the hope to spare others our fate & to bring an end to a betrayal of the worst kind.
