A group of incredible people came together to organize Impeach Trump March on July 2nd, 2017. Social justice activists from organizations throughout Los Angeles such as Indivisible, Occupy Venice, POWER (People Organized for Westside Renewal), Ground Game LA, and others coordinated this action. It caught the imagination of other cities around the country.  Sister marches included: Albuquerque, NM; Amarillo, TX; Ann Arbor, MI; Asheville, NC; Atlanta, GA; Austin, TX; Buffalo, NY; Chicago, IL; Clearwater, FL; Cleveland, OH; Cocoa, FL; Columbia, MO; Denver, CO; Detroit, MI; Fresno, CA; Knoxville, TN; Las Vegas, NV; Long Island, NY; Merida, MX; Milwaukee, WI; New Orleans, LA; New York, NY; Ocala, FL; North San Diego County, CA; Omaha, FL; Orange County, CA; Palm Beach, FL; Peoria, IL; Philadelphia, PA; Phoenix, AZ; Quad Cities, IA/IL; Rapid City, SD; Sacramento, CA; Salinas, CA; Salt Lake City, UT; San Antonio, TX; San Diego, CA; San Francisco, CA; Seattle, WA; St. Louis, MO; St. Petersburg, FL; Treasure Coast, FL; Ukiah, CA; Ventura, CA; Yuba City, CA.

My roll was small in all of this – the fabrication and location of  a banner drop as part of the march. I had help from two good friends and co-organizers with the LA Tenants Union: Mark and Javier.  What a thrilling experience.
