I attended the Atlanta March for Social Justice and Women Saturday through downtown with my mother and a few people who go to my mosque.
I was there because I wanted my voice to be heard on issues like race relations and women’s rights, but also because I needed to see the hope and solidarity expressed on the faces and signs of fellow marchers in a historic moment I hope my children will someday ask me about.
President Trump, this is what democracy looks like.
