Pink was the color of the day in South Orange and Maplewood and across the country as many nationwide participated in women’s marches on the first full day of Donald J. Trump’s term as President of the United States.
More than 1,700 locals left in the wee hours aboard buses bound for the nation’s capital, while others caught trains later in the day for the march in New York City, crowding the platforms in Maplewood and South Orange. It’s estimated that between 400,000 and 600,000 marched in the Big Apple. Estimates for the number of attendees for the Washington DC march are uncertain but are thought to be around 500,000, according to some reports.
Still others enjoyed march-themed cookies and pastries at local bakeries, wore pink scarves and hats, and watched the coverage on screens at home and at St. James’s Gate in Maplewood Village.
Finally, a local march organized by South Orange Middle School 7th grader Hudson Pollock brought hundreds out in South Orange Village.
