Brandon F Harrell Me and my friend David at the march in Asheville, NC. Couldn’t make it to DC. Much love to all. United we stand alone we can fall. Stand united! Blond Jenny My day started at 3:30am when I boarded my first bus to NYC with a dozen other women on board. An hour later we joined 582 other men and women at the NY Port Authority where we filled a dozen buses. When we arrived in D.C. at RFK Stadium every parking lot was filled with what looked like more than 1,000 other buses all carrying people on the same mission to join the Women's March. So many pink women kitties came to Washington D.C.. We looked like a sea of kitties as we made our way across town to Capitol Hill. Along the way we were greeted by the locals, friendly police offers and the military. Everyone knew it would be a busy day but I don't think anyone anticipated how busy. From young girls being carried by their mothers to the elderly we united on Independence Ave. with pride and courage. We raised our voices together to sing about what we want for our country and the world. The March didn't end when all the crowds and buses were dispersed. Our voices and songs remain in Washington D.C. and the world will continue to feel our unity. I am overwhelmingly positive from speaking with artist friends who were there with me, back home in New York, Las Vegas, and Santa Cruz. We have proven that we are connected and empowered! Before the March I was depressed and wasn't happy about the election but now I feel revitalized. I met my Senator, Cory Booker, during the March and I have plans to mail him as my first of 10 Actions in 100 Days. I will vote for him and continue to fight for a better future for us. Jeannette Kiel Walnut Creek women's march: I march with/for my sons. I teach them about love, respect, and fighting for what they believe in. I tell them that they are a part of history, we are all equal, and that love always wins. Karen LeCocq In both marches (Oakland and San Francisco), I felt the most positive energy, hopefulness and complete respect for one's fellow marchers. It was crowded, so crowded in San Francisco, that you had to walk in tiny baby steps through the assembled at the initial gathering point when you could move at all. Most of the time one was wedged in like a sardine in an over-packed can. However, there was no pushing, shoving, rude behavior or negative remarks from anyone. We were all so happy to see each other turn out. I was so moved to see the signs from all these different factions: women, men, children, LGBT's, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, immigrants...the one good thing TRUMP did was to unite all people against him into beautiful marches all across the country and even the world. That may be the one positive thing about his disastrous reign...and hopefully, because of the marches, it will be a short one. Cherie Redlinger It was a day of amazing women coming together for love, healing, and a day to hear powerful speeches like the one Gloria Steinem did that rocked the rally filled with YES WE CAN! 194

Zona Sage I was at an all day meeting of the board of the ACLU on the day of the march, planning the organization's response to the new administration, but on the lunch break joined my daughter and granddaughter at the demonstration in Oakland! It was great to be at the march and to later see the whole world rising up in unison for the good. Mary Shisler I was nearly in tears as 100,000 strong marched by. My group was late because BART was so overcrowded, so we waited until the crowd thinned out to join the march - nearly 2 and 1/2 hours after we took our positions on the corner. I am so proud and so invigorated. As many of you have found out, I have turned myself into a one woman petition machine. This is a lot more fun and please when you receive those petitions, please, please, please sign. We are having an effect. Ruth Shorer It was a beautiful rainbow of people coming together for equality and justice. The biggest question people have in retrospect is, “Will we be heard?” Samanta Tello The march in San Francisco has been really important for me, my husband and my daughters. Even at their young ages, 8 and 5, they followed the presidential election closely and with a great deal of interest. They were very excited about having the opportunity to see a woman running for the presidency and, as many of us, they were expecting the election day with enthusiasm. The result of the election was scary to them and made them feel unsafe. Their father and I had many conversations with them regarding the situation and how this could affect the world. Trying of course, to give them a sense of safety, even amidst of all the scary changes happening. To me, as a mother, the march was a bonding moment with my daughters and also a learning moment for all of us. I felt proud to show them that, even if things don't go well, we are still powerful and don't have to agree with the circumstances. Going to the march made my daughters feel that good people were on their side, the side of girls, the side of the women that they are going to become. At this age there is a really strong sense of what's right and what's wrong, and they can't understand how someone mean can be in charge of our country. Going to the march made them feel proud, powerful and happy to be on the good side. And of course, they absolutely loved feeling the attention of people around them taking their photo with the sign they worked so hard on making. Wendy Tigchelaar Walking up Lexington Avenue toward the NYC Women’s March, Patti Smith’s song lyrics fill my head…..I believe everything we dream can come to pass through a union, that we can turn the world around, we can turn the earth’s revolution, we have the power, people have the power…. On the small island of Manhattan, people of all ages and classes and colors and genders and identities and abilities press together as we march. We are imperfect, all. Yet our numbers fill the streets, our signs color the air above our heads, our chants swell in a heart-lifting roar. We’re not here for catharsis. We are here for a much larger purpose: to remember that we need each other. For who will speak out with me when my truths are obliterated and my rights are violated, if not you? Who will stand with you when your identity is shamed and your vulnerability is abused and your body and soul are harmed, if not me? 195
