REFLECTIONS FROM THE WOMEN’S MARCH 2017 Amy Finkbeiner We got all the way to the White House. He must have heard us. Kathy Fujii-Oka It was a phenomenal day marching in peace and solidarity with a passionate crowd of anti-Trump individuals. How empowering it felt, a global day of love and honor in support of human rights and beliefs… loved the pink hats and wonderfully creative signage! Karen Gutfreund The ground swell in Washington was amazing, with thousands of women walking from every direction towards Ground Zero... the main stage. Early morning, with a bit of a chill in the air and overcast, yet the air sparkled with electricity. We were trying to meet up with friends and unfortunately as more and more people assembled most all cell phone service went out. Somehow the gods were smiling on Sally and me, and as we inched around a building in search of our friends we actually ended up just 30 yards from the mainstage. Although people were packed in like sardines (and if you had to get out it would have been impossible) the crowds stretched out a mile in all directions, the mood was jubilant and accommodating no matter how many more people try to squeeze in. The speeches were incredibly inspiring, and I plan to use the poem by Nina Mariah Donovan, age 19, that Ashley Judd performed into a text painting (giving credit of course!) But what affected me the most was Sophie Cruz, a 6-year-old immigration activist and daughter of two undocumented immigrants, who spoke at the March. She is the little girl who "initially attracted attention when she slipped through the security barricade to get to Pope Francis during a procession when he visited the U.S. in 2015. She handed the pope a letter about immigration reform, in which she expressed her fear that her parents would be deported." She said, "We are here together making a chain of love to protect our families...Let us fight with love, faith and courage so that our families will not be destroyed. “I also want to tell the children not to be afraid, because we are not alone, There are still many people that have their hearts filled with love.” She then repeated it in Spanish. It brought me to tears. Later I discovered a song from a flash mob that has gone viral "I can't keep quiet," www.icantkeepquiet.org that is just so incredibly inspiring and makes my heart swell. So while I am very tired today, I keep playing it and it is energizing me. To bring her music to the march, The performer MILCK formed an all female choir comprised of 26 women from Los Angeles and D.C. I think it will become the anthem to this movement. Now that it has started it will not be stopped or silenced. And then the actual March began. The creativity and slogans on the signs were just unbelievable. I'm thinking of making a compilation book (as soon as I get the copyright issues sorted out) with photos of signs from around the globe, and then selling them as a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood. The chance were very inspiring and fun too. I think my favorite was "we are here to stay, welcome to your first day." The sea of people stretched on for miles and the roar of the crowd was like a turbulent ocean. Whenever a helicopter would go overhead people would stop, hold their signs to the sky and roar. It felt larger than life, and I felt embraced in collective humanity that wants peace and progress. And while there were many marches in my own backyard in California I thought it was so important to be a part of history and make the effort to be in Washington. I know I am very lucky and privileged that I have the means to do so. Now while my arms are aching from holding them above my head for hours, my heart is full with hope for positive change and what we can and will do when we come together. 193
