I, Rosie Campos, have officially stepped down from my position as co-organizer of the Pennsylvania Chapter of the Women’s March on Washington. This page will no longer contain up-to-date information on the Women’s March on Washington, and is no longer affiliated either formally or informally with the March.

If you have any questions regarding my decision, I have written my reasons here. These reasons were relevant in the decision I made on November 21, 2016 to step down. I cannot attest to whether the voicing of these reasons can or will affect change within the March organization.

Regardless of whether you choose to participate in the March or not, I strongly urge everyone to inform themselves, get active, donate time and money to organizations that actively, demonstrably work toward inclusion and are transparent in their processes.
