The march was wonderful. What a loving and inspiring crowd of people. They estimate 750,000 people walked in Los Angeles, causing huge waits to get anywhere. We stood huddled together for long periods of time, and still we smiled, cheered, chanted, sang, and danced. Here are some photos of some of my favorite signs that people carried with them throughout the day.
We walked with our local SB Cares group – 140 of us went on buses from the South Bay. (The first two photos and of my friend and day-long march buddy, Debra and myself.) I’m wearing the Spirited Women’s Namaste scarf.
Will I ever do another march? The answer if a resounding “yes!” Everyone I hear from feels the same way. We loved it! And in the meantime, SB Cares is still working. We’ve developed several task forces to do what we can to keep moving forward, not backwards to where our new president wants us to be. I’m a co-chair of the Women’s Rights task force and a member of the one on mental health. Come join us. Find us on Facebook here.
