The hostesses, Devon Renee McKinney and Kelsi Wellens, chose to use this time to also fundraise for important charities in the area that may also be negatively impacted since the recent elections. They raised over $1,200 for local groups including Planned Parenthood and Odyssey Youth. I was very encouraged and inspired by the number of people who came to support each other. I took a few photos but not many. However, some of my favorite images are of complete strangers chatting with each other in civil and positive ways, especially the police force who took time to engage with the protestors.
