Protests in Washington D.C. – Women’s March on Washington

On the day after Tump’s Presidential Inauguration, hundreds of thousands of protesters marched through Washington D.C. from the National Mall to the White House. The march was protesting Trump and other Republicans’ records on women’s rights issues. The march was briefly stopped in front of the white house by Secret Service and police officers but continued throughout the city for a few more hours.

I have one more SD card of pictures left to edit, but I haven’t been able to get to it because of a broken card reader. I should have a new one this week, and I will do one more blog post of new photos from the whole time I was in D.C.
