This past Saturday, people came out all over the city to support voting rights. The main actions were the Voting Rights March, starting at McPherson Square and ending in a rally at the Mall, and a Get in Good Trouble rally commemorating the 58th anniversary of MLK’s March on Washington at the Lincoln Memorial.
So when you looked at the famous backdrops of D.C. – the Capitol, the Lincoln Memorial, or the Washington Monument – you could see people demonstrating for voting rights by all of those places.
There were many notable civil rights speakers, and media live-streaming both of the major events.
Most moving of all was to see the passion of ordinary people, who came out in the thousands and stayed throughout an extremely hot day.
And until the rain washes it away, look down at the sidewalks and you may see some #ChalkTheVote drawings in unexpected places.
