    Filipino voices from the Women’s March on Washington

    WASHINGTON, DC — Filipino Americans were among the hundreds of thousands who packed the streets of the capital during the Women’s March on Washington Jan. 21.

    It was important for me to be present and support the march not only as a woman, but to show solidarity with all of people of color, immigrants, sexual orientations and multiple identities.

    It’s important also to recognize that Filipino American showed the highest number of support for Trump among Asian American voters, according to the National Asian American Survey.

    But for me, the purpose of the march was not strictly to oppose the president, but also to stand together to show respect for one another as human beings.
