Inspiring words of Courage and Compassion

We at the WNYPC are very grateful to so many for Saturday. Speakers were eloquent, varied, so disciplined and respectful of the time, and so inspired.

Two especially moving were Jaimie Marzullo, Chair of our Communications Committee, and her son Aiden. Jaimie’s very wise and wonderful words are slightly below. We are honored to share them here.

We were also honored by the courage and compassion of Aiden. At only 9 years old, he was so filled with the Spirit that he stood in front of more than 3000, and said, “I will never stop fighting for the equal rights. And to all the kids, when you fall down, I hope you always get back up again.”

Update Jan 23, Incl Correction: No Hate No Mandate crowd 3,500-3,600

Dear Friends, 716-332-3904

What a wonderfully inspiring gathering we had at the No Hate, No Mandate
March and Rally, with – to correct our estimate – 3,500-3,600 people
from all over WNY – a diverse, determined, and dynamic group that stood up
for each other and for our principles.

No Hate, No Mandate Rally, Women’s Marches = Historic Moment

For the some 4,000 that came out, yesterday was a day to remember!!!! Many, many thanks to all the people who came out, with your beautiful signs, your inspiring children, your words and acts of courage, compassion and unity!!!!
After the square was full, the crowd kept coming. Our inspiring speakers, representing both the WNYPC and many of the legion and growing number of groups connecting and working together, did WNY proud, as County Executive Poloncarz pointed out. So did the busloads and carloads who bravely went to DC to stand up for us all the the principles we uphold.
