January 21st, 2017, cities around the globe joined in union to protest anticipated changes to women's health rights under the Trump administration. Though the march was promoted as a "women's" event, thousands of men and kids attended.

A few of us participated in the Women's March on Washington in St. Paul, Minnesota where an estimated 90,000+ people gathered. The theme of solidarity with family, friends, and fellow citizens was strong. People rallied not only in support of women's rights, but also in support of minority groups and social justice, and environmental proaction.
