Does anyone have suggestions for signs for The women's march Saturday?

I am going to the one in Sedona. I am going to get a few signs made, some for others. I would appreciate your suggestions. I have one hanging on my front fence. Benedict Donald. Traitor trump. Not my president. The neighbors told me to keep up the good work and another wants to go to the march.

4. I wish I could post photos of mine.

I have been to 11 rallies from the Tax March, Die In/ACA, Impeachment March, DACA Rally, Women's March 2017, Independent Investigation March, etc. I am an illustrator and recycle my signs now to save time and money on supplies. I like to use a large piece of white foam core and a wooden dowel taped to it with clear, packing tape and I use that as my "base". I make new signs with large, white heavy paper that I tape up on three sides and make it like a giant pocket/sleeve and slide it over the foam core and dowel and tape/seal the bottom, open end.

You can look on You Tube for last year's rallies and marches for ideas. This year's themes are "Hear Our Vote" and "Power To The Polls". We want people to run for election and to get out and VOTE! All subject matter and issues are being addressed however.


Hear are a couple of my older signs that I may reuse.




Here is the logo for this year's march ...https://m.facebook.com/events/145423992873191/

7. Thanks!

I had to go back to college and get a second degree to become a teacher since you can't make a living as an artist. When you are artistic the talent doesn't just go away and it came in handy as a teacher. My students were easy to impress too. I don't teach anymore though and I do miss the free art supplies. That's why I recycle my signs. There have been so many rallies/marches in the past year I have to be economical.

10. I was a k-12 librarian. I have had the worst year, The worst Christmas ever. I assign a lot of the

Blame for the country’s malaise and anger and depression in this country. I read at least one person a day is committing suicide on a daily bases. Today was my birthday. I was in the hospital last week because of possible suicide but they brought me home in a cab a couple hours later. But they lost my dentures and I have spent four days without them. My husband died the day before my birthday so this is always a hard time. I understand the fear but we can’t let him get away with destroying our country. So at the end of this winding down this evening, it came to me one sign might be “wake up”stop the hate”.

11. Happy Birthday!!!!!

I got a bumper sticker in the mail from some Dem group(I forget which one) and it was very simple. It said in all caps, bold white print on a solid dark background... RESIST It is short and direct.
HATE

It has been a horrible year for most people. I read an article recently that said more Americans have more anxiety and depression now due to a single reason (the Moron of course) than since WW2. It is worse than the Cold War, nuclear bomb fears, the Vietnam War or Watergate. Psychologists are definitely seeing the changes in their patients as well as physical doctors. If you aren't unsettled than you are in the minority. I am directing my intense anger and disgust into being active and resisting. It does help.

14. Blame on the last election. The suicide is reference to PR. I better go to bed. Late for me.

Teaching was my second degree too. First was journalism.

13. "I Can't Believe I Still Have to Protest this Shit." For those of us of a certain age.

"No One is Above the Law" would be topical, since grifters and con artists occupy the government.
