A weekend of contrasts

This past weekend illustrated how many different ways there are to see political issues up close in D.C. – from being inside the White House, to seeing the Women’s March, to the March for Life, all within a 24-hour span.

The Women’s March

The Women’s March was small but fervent this year – the main march was in Phoenix and D.C. was one of the many satellite locations.

March for Life

The annual March for Life started in 1974, shortly after the Roe decision. Despite the overturning of Roe and a very cold snowy day, the crowds this year continued to be very large, with a rally on the Mall and a march to the Supreme Court.
