Meet a few of the upbeat riders on the light rail heading into downtown Los Angeles for today’s Women’s March. By the time we got off the metro and rode the escalator above ground to reach the start of the march, so many people had arrived before us that we were unable to move for quite some time.
I was so impressed by the positive attitude.
I’ve been to my fair share of protests, and this one was extraordinarily polite and friendly and upbeat. The best entertainment was the homemade placards.
After all the negativity following the election, people are clearly buoyed by the sheer immensity of support for one another.
The crowd was estimated by the Los Angeles Police at about 500,00o.
My photos don’t come near being able to portray how many people were there.
