The Women’s March on Chicago was nearly five times bigger than expected.

The Women’s March on Chicago took place on January 21st, one day after the inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States. People in Chicago took to the streets to raise awareness of women’s rights and civil liberties.

The crowd size was anticipated at 50,000 people, but estimates report more than 250,000 people being in attendance. Chicago was part of a larger global protest movement.

Working together during the Tuck Digital Excellence Program for Minority Entrepreneurs hosted at Google Chicago.

Google sponsored three events related to supplier diversity and I helped photographed those who participated, the atmosphere, and the related activities. A lot happened during that time, but here’s a small roundup of my favorite photographs.
