An estimated three million people worldwide took to the streets to participate in the Women’s March on January 21, 2017.
Among the marchers in Washington, D.C., were 16 students from the San Francisco Unified School District. Over thirty individuals donated money to the district specifically to send young women of color to the March. Students from the district’s Peer Resource program applied to represent their schools.
Three students — Briana Boteo, Marianna Baines, and Aglow Logovii — recorded some of their experiences from the March. We sat down with them before and after their trip to hear their thoughts.
