In a show of solidarity, IAM members joined millions of others across the U.S. and Canada to march in Saturday’s historic Women’s March.

Watch: Women’s March on Washington

“I’m here because it’s the right thing to do. I’m a stand up, speak out kind of woman. I’m not just gonna sit here.” – IAM General Vice President Diane Babineaux

“I have to support our women, I have to support labor issues and the rights of all women to have free choice, protect our jobs and not the rhetoric that we’re hearing but just to make sure that it gets done and done right.” – NFFE-IAM National Business Representative Roosevelt Littlejohn, Jr.

We rally, we march and make our voices heard. That’s what Fighting Machinists do. #IAMfighting #WomensMarchOnWashington

NFFE-IAM member Amanda Booher came all the way from Seattle to march in Washington DC
“It’s very important to me because I’m outraged about what’s going on in the country right now as I think everyone should be, and I wanted to make my voice heard.”
