Women’s March on Washington

On January 20th, Donald Trump was inaugurated. The next day, more than 500,000 women and men marched on Washington, D.C., demonstrating in protest. I drove down from Delaware at 5 AM. My sister flew out from California with friends. We met up and marched and I took some pictures on the way.

It’s hard to believe how much is happening so quickly. The news is distressing to the point of causing anxiety in many Americans. A lot of people don’t know what to do. What victories there are for the opposition seem small. But it’s important to remember that resisting this presidency started on the first day, with half a million people in D.C. alone, and others marching together across the world.

These big numbers and large groups are important, but it is individuals that can and do make the difference. I shot faces in the crowd during the march to remember that: here are some of the people who are resisting.
