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.
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.

Can’t end the day without thanking the businesses that opened their restroom doors to Marchers ~ NiLu Gift Shop on Lenox Avenue and Malachy’s on 72nd Street, and a huge thank you to artist, Naomi (East Harlem) for holding free pussy hat knitting workshops and UGCeats in East Harlem for hosting the knitters. Thank you to Connie Lee (President of the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance + Public Art Initiative) for organizing the Central Harlem group, and connecting with Carmen Cruz, and the East Harlem Marchers.
