“The Tucson women’s march was a part of a nation-wide and global movement for believers in equality to stand together in solidarity the day after Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. The movement itself was not anti-Trump but rather a non-partisan pro-equality demonstration intended to show the world that we stand together for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, our families, and our environment.” – Gabriella Cazares-Kelly
