For the past two years, the Western History Department has collected posters, objects and photos from marchers who participated in the Women’s March on Denver. This year, we will collect stories at the march and online.
When I worked on the Pink Progression exhibit last year, I had the privilege of working with several donors from the 2017 Women’s March. Collecting their stories was a powerful experience that added to the depth of the collection. On January 19, we will capture more of these stories by setting up a “Share Your Story” station in Acoma Plaza during the march. We will provide a worksheet for people to share (through words and/or drawing) why they marched. We will also collect stories and photos online until January 31. Please stop by and see us on January 19 or share online!
