Miranda Roehrick in Los Angeles


Now: WE WORK. Democracy is like a garden: you’ve got to faithfully get down in the dirt and work if you want it to thrive.

Huge thanks to A.J. Verdelle, today’s PSM guest blogger and my editor/writing coach. I hope you caught her impassioned post where she charged us all: “consistent action is calling your name”.  If you’re looking for your next step, start by adding your senators and congresspeople to your contact lists so you can “call them…while you drive, or while you wait for coffee to brew.”

Thanks to all my PSM correspondents for sending pictures from Honolulu, Los Angeles, Seattle, Santa Rosa and San Francisco.

Here’s our powerful gallery of pictures you won’t see on the nightly news:

Los Angeles: 750,000
Photos shared by: Miranda Roehrick & Karen Lindquist (my kid & niece)

The collective energy of it all was incredibly powerful. If we vow to keep fighting, and continue to show that we will not sit passively, the millions of us who showed up yesterday (along with those who support but couldn’t be there) have the ability to make a real difference. ~ Miranda Roehrick, Pitzer College, Class of 2017

74 years old and my first march……but not my last. It made me want to be more involved. I was so impressed how organized the event was. All over the world. Not one incident that I know of. That’s what happens when women are in charge. ~ Sharon Eide, Photographer, Novato, CA
