The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur were active participants in the women’s marches in Washington, D.C. and across the country.
In California, Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur joined thousands of others in demonstrations in San Jose, Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles. Through their presence at the Women’s Marches, the Sisters advocated for women’s equality, immigration rights, affordable healthcare and other issues consistent with Notre Dame values.
Sr. Kay McMullen, who attended the event in Oakland, shared that “a meaningful experience was the participation of the men who were in our little group,” especially her cousin’s husband. To ride to the march in the already-full Volvo wagon, he squeezed into the cargo hold. “He was that determined to support us and the issues he cares about!” said Sr. Kay.
