On Saturday, Jan. 20, the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump’s inauguration, more 300,000 men, women and children marched through the streets of Chicago in order to raise awareness for the equality of women, members of the LGBTQ+ community, racial minorities, immigrants and many other groups, according to the march organizers. The main focus of this year’s march was to encourage people to vote in the upcoming midterm elections that will be held this November. The hope expressed at this year’s “March to the Polls” is that people will vote for the changes they want to see, considering 50 percent of eligible voters didn’t vote in the 2016 election.
