This month, Flatbush + Main listeners get a bonus segment of “Voices of Brooklyn!” On January 21, 2017, hundreds of thousands of people, including countless Brooklynites, took part in the Women’s March on NYC. Julie spoke to several participants about why they marched, what activism means to them, and how their beliefs have evolved since the 2016 election. We’re honored to share their thoughtful reflections.

Were you one of the marchers that proudly brandished a protest sign? Our Library & Archives is looking to collect signs from the march to chronicle this historic event. If you’d like to donate it, you can mail it to Brooklyn Historical Society or drop it off in person. Our address is 128 Pierrepont Street, Brooklyn NY, 11201.
