On a day that serves as the beginning of a highly contested administration, nothing is left out of the political arena. Politics has become the forefront of daily life — and it should be. People are becoming more aware of their choices and of the consequences of non-participation. This means that more and more people are gathering to resist, protest, and give action to moments that will historically impact how we view each other and our government.
