Community members from DeKalb, Sycamore, and the surrounding area mobilizing as women and supporters of women to protect our rights and civil liberties. We are of varied races, ethnicities, ages, religions, sexual identities, economic situations, politics, and countless other diversities. We shared space on January 21st to express our diverse and similar concerns and protect our rights and our humanity, and continue to do so.

The mission of DeKalb Stands is: Advocate, challenge, and persist through small group action. This mission is based on out values: To support American values that acknowledge the importance of caring for our communities, our world, and our environment; to actively contribute politically to the future of our region, state and country; to work to ensure an inclusive American society where all people are welcome and treated with respect; and to foster dialog within and across groups with differing ideologies.
