Chicago: 1/20/18 Women’s March to the Polls!

#womensmarchchi March to the Polls!

A most Historic moment. 300,000 strong voices in Chicago, and also all over the World, on January 20th 2018. I share my views from on location.

I was powered by the energy, diversity, and all the wonderous moment that kept unveiling themselves- in the faces of determination. Of voices to be heard and recognized. Of the women, strong. Of the allies united, men, children, youngest to oldest, people with disabilities, all marching.

The mission of Women’s March is to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change. Women’s March is a women-led movement providing intersectional education on a diverse range of issues and creating entry points for new grassroots activists & organizers

I shot over 700 photos in the 6 hours I documented the day. My physical endurance was increased with each sign and face I saw, a nod of encouragement. onward… Also, video clips. a week later, I am still sorting and editing with amazement of “We the People”

I am sure I will be exhibiting many, –in search of a venue–but for now, in the moment, I am sharing some with you via social media and the impressive international website, Social Documentary.

Power to the People. Free Speech. Freedom of the Press, in whatever format–shoot photos, video, share, post!! We all need to be strong for democracy and our future!

If you wish to see a few more, here is the link:: thanks!
