Huge Victory in Virginia!

On Tuesday, November 7, the people of Virginia led the way and voted for clean water, climate action and the environment, and voted against the Trump Administration’s anti-science agenda.

A Millennial's First Political Rally - Providence Women’s March

An hour later, the gathering would manifest itself into a powerful assemblage of people who collectively had a lot to say.
