I had an amazing experience photographing this march. I was part of the official photography team on the organization team for the march. It was my first time photographing for an organization/behind the scenes instead of photographing as a participant. Thanks to Sarah Matheson (for the thousandth time) for this amazing opportunity.
My photos have been featured in an article about the march by The Daily Northwestern! Check it out the online version here: https://dailynorthwestern.com/?p=199983. Scroll to the bottom of this page to view the print version of the article.
