My Mommy Marches
Mommy says that some things can’t be said with just words . . . Sometimes you have to say it with your feet.
A young girl watches her mommy proudly take to the streets to march for what she believes in. Mommy marches through the sunshine, through the rain and through the deepest snow, on her own or hand-in-hand with others, to give voice to causes that need to be heard. Inspired to join the next generation of young activists, her daughter dreams of marching alongside her.
A joyful story celebrating the power of peaceful protest and the will to change things for the better.
