Michael Kennedy details his experience joining the #WomensMarch on Saturday, January 21st in Providence:

"The solidarity of this gathering was not based on homogeneity by any means. The diversity of backgrounds, of priorities, of political views, was clear among speakers and in the public, and so apparent in in the poetic rallying cry of the event itself. But that diversity did not diminish solidarity.

Rhode Island was clearly part of the global wave signaling an embrace of truthfulness, love, and solidarity in the now, and for the future. Hope, Rhode Island’s motto, was felt in our bones."
