“So my sister told me the night before about [the women’s march]. So, I thought it was going to be in front of Donald Trump’s building. But I realized how big the thing was actually going to be. So, I get there and I saw everyone from LHS and there’s like 20,000 people there and I was like oh my gosh, this is humongous. It was just such an amazing event and I felt called to do things for my causes. I didn’t just go there for the Women’s March, I went there for the environment, for immigration, and not just to protest Trump, but to spread unity throughout…I felt wanted. I felt like this movement is going to make a change and it was a whole different feeling. When I came home, a lot of people didn’t like that I went because it was a women’s march and I’m a guy. So, I felt like a guy has a right to stand up for what he believes in as much as anyone else. It changed everything. It changed my whole outlook on life.”
Junior Michael Graham attended the Women’s March in Chicago in January.
