Rep. Maloney Statement on Inauguration and Women’s March

Jan 18, 2017
Press Release

Along with President Obama, Secretary Clinton, the entire United States Senate and the Democratic leadership of the House of Representatives, I am attending the inauguration out of respect for our country's peaceful transition of power and our democratic institutions.

One of those institutions is the right to protest and make our voices heard, which is why the day after the inauguration, I will be attending the Women's March on NYC and I will be there every step of the way going forward to vigorously defend our progressive values. I look forward to joining my constituents in New York City to send a strong signal that this election will not silence our voices. Now, more than ever, I am resolved to stand up to any attack from President-elect Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans on LGBTQ rights; women's rights and reproductive rights; the Affordable Care Act, Medicare and Medicaid; Social Security and our social safety net; and our civil liberties.
