Dyke Marches are community-driven, grassroots, and meant to bring together all who identify as dykes through marching as an act of visibility and protest, and a crucial part of this organizing is working with our community partners. Our core community partners that we will be fundraising for this year are centered around our theme, Dykes Against Displacement. These organizations are doing life saving work in DC to combat displacement and provide housing for our cities most vulnerable communities.

These barriers must go. That’s why the Task Force is training and mobilizing millions of activists across our nation to deliver a world where you can be you.
