2018 Women’s March NYC

 

 

The Women’s March is back this year in full-force, with more than 200,000 protesters here in NYC according to Mayor de Blasio’s office, coming from not only all boroughs, but all over the tri-state area, streaming by the hundreds, then by the thousands onto Central Park West for the March down Sixth Avenue.  Similar marches ~ more than 600 of them ~  are taking place at the same time, all throughout our Country.

Central Harlem Marchers meeting at NiLu Gift Shop

My uptown group met at two locations ~ Central Harlem at NiLu Gift Shop, and East Harlem at Starbucks on 96th Street & Lexington Avenue.

On our way to the subway, we met up with Veterans groups, Dreamers, Save Planned Parenthood, ProChoice, AntiWall, LGBTQ groups, #BlackLivesMatter, Climate Change groups, #MeToo, #TimesUp,  Equality, Healthcare, and on & on & on.
