AAUW was present at the large, orderly, and highly emotional Women’s March on Saturday January 21, 2017 from San Marcos City Hall to the warm welcoming rally at Palomar College. The parking lots were filled, it rained and was cold, but everyone was filled with the warmth generated by seeing close to 4,000 people of all ages, representing all the spectrum of American and Californian society, gathered for a larger purpose. Some were holding placards and banners, many were holding their husbands’, boyfriends’, children’s, grandchildren’s hands, and all were joyous and determined, some chanting slogans, some talking to the stranger walking beside them, who became a friend by the end of the route. AAUW President Linda Quinby and her husband Dave manned the table at Palomar, assisted by Nancy Telford and Jackie Stone, while other members such as myself marched, took pictures, and remembered their younger marches.
And now the work begins, as speakers and organizers emphasized. We can’t let the positive energy dissipate through inaction.
