DC Women's March- 2017

I joined the 500,000+ people marching in Washington DC yesterday for the DC Women's March. This was one of the hundreds of marches around the world with millions of people protesting for the rights of women, the environment, diversity and general freedoms. I enjoyed the clever signs and diversity of ages and races present at the March. It was a crowd of pink hats, cheers and inclusivity. Even the police officers on duty were cheering on the crowd. One held up a sign that said "this is what a feminist looks like." Speakers ranged from the famous Alicia Keys singing "This Girl is on Fire" to young immigrant Sophie Cruz who brought tears to the crowds' eyes. It was a colorful but civil day with not one arrest in DC. It was an awesome moment to share with some of the women I care deeply about.
