The Women’s Marches around the USA and the world were an amazing act of bravery, celebration, and “wake up, we’re here and we will be heard.” The energy at the marches was uplifting and powerful, as shared with me by a friend who attend the St. Paul, Minnesota March.
Here are some pictures that share hopefulness, in a time when the US president and administration are not supporting women, children, Muslims, LGBT people, the environment or the Arts.

Black women came and were angry at white women. Wow, I’ve got work to do on connecting with black people. The word Intersection felt good to me. Peoples coming together, no matter their color, their sex, their religion and working together.
