An estimated 450,000 people attended the March on Washington and an estimated 3.2 million people participated in roughly 300 marches across the United States, including 120,000 in Seattle. The unprecedented number of protesters signals a climate of mounting resistance to the Trump presidency.
Seattle resident Danielle Davis, an engaged activist who took two cross-country trips in hopes of making a difference in the 2016 presidential election, says the march gave her a renewed sense of hope and determination.
“If this election has taught me anything, it’s the dangers of being complacent and expecting someone else to stand up for things that are important,” says Davis. “Moving forward, I feel highly motivated to stay active in politics.”
