#WeWillPersist: The Women’s March Lives On

It’s almost been a year since the momentous Women’s March. All over the globe, people from all walks of life united to advocate for women’s rights. The fight is ongoing, but there is truly something inspirational and beautiful about millions of people coming together for a shared passion.

I had the pleasure of attending the Women’s March in St. Pete. My good friend, the amazing Maren Scharf, documented our unforgettable experience. Her video truly captures the pure joy and blissfulness experienced by every single person at the March. The smiles seen on the faces of all of the strong fighters are sincerely contagious. Please enjoy this wonderful video. Even though our situation may seem daunting at the moment, as long as this passionate and courageous sentiment stays alive among us, our goals will never subside. We will persist.
