Millions of Americans took to the streets from D.C. to NYC to L.A. and everywhere in between was the single biggest one-day protest in U.S. history.
UConn professor Jeremy Pressman has kept a running total of crowd estimates across the United States in a Google document.
An estimated 60,000 people marched in Atlanta. 250,000 are marching in Chicago. There are estimates of 250,000 people in Boston, and 200,000 more in Denver. In New York, the estimate ranges from 200,000-500,000. City officials estimate that 500,000 people participated in the main march in Washington, DC. In Los Angeles, the estimate is anywhere from 200,000-750,000, and on and on…
And so the celebs turned out too to speak and sing and march too. It must be fun to look over like my friend Dan Scheffy and see Helen Mirren marching along or snap a pic with Jamie Lee Curtis like Ann Magnuson did. Madonna ran into Cher backstage and Yoko and Whoopi turned out in NYC. (No last names needed.)
