Women’s March St. Pete, 2017

Very proud to have been part of the largest protest in St. Pete, Fl to date.

Initially not expected to be a large affair, by Thursday this past week over 17,000 people had registered to attend the Women’s march. For a while it looked like we would have to march double-file because the city didn’t want to close the streets for insurance reasons. I’m not sure what happened exactly, but at some point while crowds were gathering the police were called to block off the roads. I’m assuming they realized it wasn’t realistic to have such a large protest confined to the sidewalks. Either way, it progressed peacefully and was well organized. Police estimated the total crowd to have been around 20,000. My utmost gratitude to the organizers, volunteers, and fellow protesters.

Best regards,
