Women's March Draws Thousands Nationwide to Protest Aginst Trump SCOTUS Pick
On Saturday, thousands marched in Washington D.C and across the nation "to send an unmistakable message about the fierce opposition to Trump and his agenda, including his attempt to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat."
Keep this in mind:
The Women's March has been held annually since January 21, 2017, the day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump. However, Saturday's march is the second demonstration this year and was scheduled to be before election day and the October 22 senate confirmation vote on Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
Many participants held signs and even dress up as the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg; others dressed up in costumes from the popular Hulu series' Handmaind Tails'.
Rachel O'Leary Carmona, executive director of the Women's March, said in her opening statements before the crowd, "His presidency began with women marching, and now it's going to end with woman voting. Period," she said, per the A.P.
"It is not hyperbole to say that everything is on the line this November," said Jenny Lawson of Planned Parenthood Votes, per NBC 4 New.
Protesters were asked to wear facemask and practice social distancing due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandmeic.
