On Saturday, January 21, 2017 I had the honor of joining over 250,000 women, men and children in a march for civil, disability, healthcare, LGBTQ rights and racial equality. It was humbling to see people of diverse backgrounds willing to stand, to march, and cry out against injustices everywhere.
The marchers were peaceful, the speakers were eloquent and I left inspired and hopeful about unified change. I was moved when seeing a white man toting a “Black Lives Matter” sign or seeing a young boy wearing his Mexican sombrero and poncho. Seniors and infants were sprinkled throughout the march because everyone can be a apart of change, and everyone is affected by change. It was a beautiful day to be American.
Enough said…check out a few photos (or see more at this link: Women’s March on Chicago Photos)
