Early this year, MARCH ON launched an initiative to harness the groundswell of progressive energy coming out of the women’s marches of 2017 and subsequent political activity. Operation Marching Orders received input from over 6,000 participants to build a political platform for the resistance to take us into the midterms. From this national conversation, comes the Declaration For Our Future, a unifying document for the marchroots — those who have been moved to political action through the marches — and marching orders for our elected representatives.
MARCH ON was founded on the belief that this movement belongs to the women and allies who marched on January 21st, 2017 and all those who have continued to march, protest and fight back ever since. Operation Marching Orders is the purest expression of our intent to keep the people in the driver’s seat. This interactive poll gave all of us — in red states or blue states, urban or rural — a voice in the change we want to see in our country. With this input, Operation Marching Orders allowed us to identify and synthesize the priorities of the movement. The Declaration For Our Future is our guiding document. We are thrilled by the outpouring of passionate support and engagement. More than 6,000 people cast votes on statements in the poll, and more than 533,000 total votes were recorded, with the average participant voting on more than 84 unique statements. In addition, participants added more than 2000 unique statements reflecting their views. With our Declaration complete, MARCH ON is ready to jump into the midterms by focusing on key states and races where we are getting ready to March On The Polls.
