Veronica, Antonio, Katherine, Margo, and Joyce

On January 21st, I joined millions of people worldwide to protest the presidency of Donald Trump and stand in defense of human rights. During the march, I photographed a few of the 20,000 Arizonans at the Phoenix Women's March, and asked what motivated them to be a part of this historic day. 

What's your name and why are you marching?

"I’m veronica Williams because we all have the right to do what we want to do in live. And this is my friend Antonio C. and he does everything he believes is right and he goes to wherever he knows he’s needed."

"My name is Katherine Castaneda and I’m here because I think every person has the right to be who they want to be without being oppressed to who they are and what they do."

 My name is Margo and I believe that everyone has the right to "be whatever they want to be."

"My name is Joyce and I believe that the new generation coming up, all children, deserve a clean environment and a whole, healthy earth. And people with money are destroying it with greed. And especially with our indigenous people — if they discover oil or gold or uranium, they shove them off, as if they weren’t even there. And they are U.S. citizens."
