Ross, originally from Georgia but lives in the Washington, DC area, is seen at the July 4th White House Flash Mob on Tuesday, July 4, 2017. “I feel very strongly about the presidency being degraded by Donald Trump. He’s putting not just any political party, affiliation, or any particular group of people at risk, but he is, it’s everyone. All Americans should be concerned about the way things are headed. Just the un-presidential nature of his administration and… I could go on. You can look up what he’s done. Everyone knows. So, yeah, that’s why I’m here. And it’s Independence Day, so I thought it was an appropriate time to be out here.” 

Hannah Grace McDonald, of Minnesota, is seen at the Stop Trump’s Muslim Ban protest in front of the Supreme Court on Saturday July 1, 2017 in Washington, DC. “I just feel like everything about my country, what I’m proud of and what I believe in, is on the line. I come from a military family. Both my parents are veterans. My mom is now an ESL teacher. And because of that I’ve gotten to see the whole country and have followed the new immigrants in to our country. It’s so inspiring. I lived in Germany for a few years, and they always say Americans don’t have any culture. And I say no. I look at us as being a culture full of immigrants and founding on that. And with the recent ban, and all of this xenophobic rhetoric, I just feel like we have a chance of losing whatever culture we do have. And, yeah, if we put up walls and stop planes I’m afraid of what will happen."

Joe Bates, left, and his son Matthew Bates from Fairfax, VA are seen at the March for Truth DC rally held on the National Mall on Saturday, June 3, 2017 in Washington, DC. Joe shared, “I’m here because Trump is the most despicable president we’ve ever had in the history of the United States. And I think we the people need to show that we’re not going to stand for it."
