More than 100K women, men, children march on Denver for second Women’s March (photo gallery)
Cold gave way to warm temperatures on Saturday when more than 100,000 women, men, and children filled the streets of downtown Denver to celebrate one another in solidarity at the Women’s March on Denver.
People came from all over the country to take part in the one-year anniversary of the event with hopes of change and to have their voices heard.
Connected through their experiences and bonding over their differences, passionate marchers flooded the streets with pink as chants echoed in the air. The collection of humanity worked their way through the usually busy streets around the Colorado State Capitol in a demonstration of unity, and support of one another.
Colorful, creative signs highlighted the crowd, as marchers worked their way through the streets back to Civic Center Park, where a day of guest speakers and local performers awaited their return.
Throughout the day, roars of applause from the sea of people overtook the park while people danced, laughed and embraced one another and their differences.
While many of the issues have changed from year to year, one thing remains the same.
The Women’s March shows that underneath it all, people are all more alike than different and by celebrating those differences, we can begin to rebuild a stronger more united America.
