You might have been aware of a little march of people making their way through the city on Saturday, January 21. Well, what was estimated to have about 60,000 participants indeed drew upwards of 150,000 marchers of all genders, ages, and sizes. It was a long day, but a peaceful and powerful one. Everyone marched for their own reasons: for climate change and for science, for reproductive rights, for health care, for black lives, for brown lives, for trans lives, for indigenous rights and acknowledgment that the only ones who aren’t immigrants in this country are Native Americans, and for immigrant rights, for even just the sake of being heard. Whatever the reason, people of all sorts marched side by side starting from Judkins Park in the Central District, moving through the International District—where many took a great lunch break—and down 4th Ave eventually ending at Seattle Center.
Here are just some photos marking the journey along the way…
