Here is some of what happened the day after Donald Trump was inaugurated president of the United States, after winning the electoral vote, but losing the popular vote by close to three million votes, because of his campaign promises to make America sexist, racist, homophobic, and full of hate again:City officials estimate that 500,000 people participated in the main march in Washington, DC.250,000 in Chicago.250,000 people in Boston.200,000 more in Denver.
In New York, the estimate ranges from 200,000-500,000.
An estimated 60,000 people marched in Atlanta.In Los Angeles, the estimate is anywhere from 200,000-750,000.60,000 in St. Paul, MN.50,000 in Philadelphia.100,000 in Madison, WI.20,000 in Pittsburgh.20,000 in Nashville, TN.And these are few of the 60,000 who I marched with in Oakland, CA.In the history of the United States, there has never been a one-day protest that was this large.These numbers prove that we are not going accept the agenda of the Trump administration without a serious fight.But now that the marches are over… it is time for us to get to work.
This is not about democrats vs republicans. Or conservatives vs liberals. This is about human rights and decency. This is about love vs hate. To find out what you can do to make your voice heard after the march click here: www.womensmarch.com/100
