On Saturday, thousands gathered at Town Hall in Morristown, NJ for the Women's March on New Jersey. During the march, NRCC Political Director Lizette Delgado-Polanco spoke about key issues facing working families throughout the state. Also in attendance were NRCC Edison Team Lead and Local 254 Vice President Anthony Abrantes Sr. and NRCC Executive Board member and Local 253 Council Representative Peter Gowing.
In her speech, Lizette spoke about how she marched for her children and their rights. She said: "I march for the working men and women and their families of New Jersey, who deserve to be compensated for the services they provide. No matter your race, religion or gender, everyone deserves dignity and respect. I call on every single one of us to be the voice of faith, of love and compassion for all, to speak against Trump's discriminatory decisions and practices and not just today while we march the streets of Morristown, but every single day, we must continue to resist."
