"My name is Chris and my reason for being here is I don't think Trump represents the majority of Americans, and his cabinet doesn't represent the majority of Americans. They're very radical, and we need to take the government back from people like that."

Queen Zee

"I'm Zee, or the Queen Zee. I am a South African American representative, and I feel that the great land of America is going down in flame, and I think it's important that, just like in the Titanic, somebody took time to play music as the ship was going down.

Daniel, Angela, and Beatrice

"My name is Daniel. I'm nine."

"My name is Angela, and I'm here because I believe you have to stand up for what you believe in, and sitting at home isn't going to do much, instead of coming out and actually doing something about it." 

"My name is Beatrice, and I believe that everyone needs to know what's going on, and we need to do something about it."

Danielle and Laurie

"My name is Laurie, and I'm here with my daughter today because we have unfinished business. My husband asked me today if this was about Trump, and I said it's not about him. It has nothing to do with him. This is about women in the 70s who didn't get equality. This is about women in the 1900s who were fighting to get the right to vote. This is about Rosie the Riveter that won the damn war for this country and then was sent back into the kitchen. This is about every woman and all the people in this country who need to see the fight for equality."

Kathy and Marcus

"My name is Marcus Raul Guthrie, and I'm here as a transgendered male who's 43 years old. I was a lesbian for 41 years, and here for women's rights and all people's rights, and I'm here with my wife. I don't know, this is just amazing and I'm so glad to be here, and be able to support kindness and humanity."

"My name is Leah, and I'm here today because I think what we're facing today in the United States is about more than blue or red, more than democrat or republican. It's about standing up for basic human dignity, not just of women but of all the many groups that Trump has disrespected."

Lucy, Axle, Adam, Samuel, and Cree

"My name is Lucy Vargas and I'm here because environmental work and taking care of mother Earth is very important, and we believe it's important for everyone to know, and especially our families of color, because we are the ones that are being mostly effected. I also think it's very important to have our Latino youth to come out and support this very important issue, just like many others that are out here."

Holly, Heather, Ingrid, & Kimberly

"Hi, I'm Heather and I can't expect other people to fight for my rights while I sit back, so I'm fighting for my rights and for the rights of all women and men."

"I'm Holly, and first and foremost I'm here to protest the Trump administration, but I'm also here in support of my rights, and the rights of everyone else in our country."

"My name's Nicole Marrero. I'm here marching because of the atrocity that happened yesterday allowing president Trump to be inaugurated, and we're gonna fight for the next four years, because this is unacceptable that someone like that is in office, and I'm just here for support."

Nadia, Charlie, Rob, & Lauren

"Loren Thorton. I'm here to stand with other women, and those who support women."

"My name is Nadia Syed. I'm here because I feel like this is a fundamental violation of so many people's rights, and I think that it's beautiful that we're all here together, and here to fight for each other more than anything else."
