The Women’s March began at noon by the Unconditional Surrender statue at the Bayfront Park, and after songs and speeches, the march took us over the Ringling Causeway Bridge and back. There were people as far as the eye could see; clearly 1,000s upon 1,000s which says something for tiny Sarasota! It was orderly, peaceful, upbeat, and peppered with creative signs.
Our march was distinctively Sarasota: temps in the high 70s; breeze blowing over the bridge; bright sun and blue sky; lots and lots of traffic; a diverse group of people; and a festive atmosphere of friendship and unity.
Here are some photos that speak for themselves.
