All children are engaged in some sort of daily resistance against forces that, as Sherman Alexie put it, “seek to control and diminish” them. At the Women's March on Washington, I met and photographed a handful of awesome kids who found their resistance in marching. May they and all children know that resistance is brave, and takes a million different forms.

Immigration activist and seven-year-old Sophie Cruz told us at the rally , “I want to tell the children not to be afraid, because we are not alone. There are still many people that have their hearts filled with love”. May we be the people she believes us to be, and find ways to protect and march with these and all children, every day of our lives. Please enjoy the beautiful faces of my sweet new friends.
