She Been Puttin' In Work - De-Bug's National Coverage of the Womyn Led Resistance

Donald Trump has been in office all of 10 days and has already made good on his threats to all of humanity worldwide - reversing advances we have made to civil liberties, women's rights, environmental protections and more. His actions have been met with unprecedented protests in the streets, and thousands across the world have joined in solidarity. De-Bug folks were out in DC, in San Jose, all over the Bay and have been fighting back in the streets, organizing with marginalized communities and creating art to give voice to the sentiment of rising up together – following more often than not a womyn’s lead to steer the course of history towards justice.
