On Jan. 21, several Gabrielino High School students participated in the Women’s March Los Angeles, a city-wide protest for the human rights of women, LGBTQ individuals, immigrants, and people of color.
The event, held in downtown Los Angeles, attracted at least 750,000 people, according to NBC Southern California. Political scientists estimate that, nationwide, the protests made up the largest demonstration in United States history.
The morning of the march, senior Natalie Lee witnessed the magnitude of the occasion while traveling downtown via the Metro Gold Line. According to Lee, the trains were so crowded, people could not get on or off at the stops.
