Following the inauguration of Donald Trump in 2017, millions of women and men around the world gathered to protest abuses of women and power, hoping to spark a movement. One year later, on Jan. 20, the Women’s March celebrated their anniversary of this event, hoping to “Look Back, March Forward” into the new year. Thousands of Alaskans gathered in their communities to show support for the movement, including an event held in downtown Anchorage. There were speakers from the Young Women’s Christian Association Alaska, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the First Alaskans
Institute and UAA’s Generation Action club, before marching downtown.
