Since 2008, Mind Equals Blown has been a community that supports diversity in every sense of the word. Our staff spans the globe, represents all sorts of cultural backgrounds, welcomes all ages (literally–our staff spans 16-60 years old!), embraces those with disabilities, empowers females throughout all levels of the organization, and lovingly accepts the LGBTQ community. Above all, we value our role as an outlet where writers can gain the safety and care they deserve in order to express themselves to the world.
This past weekend, the historic Women’s March On Washington occurred on January 21, one day after the inauguration of Donald Trump. The march aimed to promote women’s rights, with 408 marches planned in the U.S. and 168 in other countries.
With at least half a million marching in Washington D.C. alone, and an estimate of more than two million worldwide, the march was the largest of its kind since the anti-Vietnam protests of the 1960s.
MEB staff from all over the country participated in their regional marches, from Washington D.C. to Nashville (and some even made their way into TIME). We are proud of their attendance and happy to share what they saw during the march. We’d love to see what you saw, too–so please leave us some photos in the comments or share with us on Facebook or Twitter!
