Be kind to one another. Love Trumps Hate. It’s going to be ok. You are not alone. Love. Love. Love.
Almost 80% of people in Brooklyn voted for Clinton. In Manhattan and the Bronx it’s closer to 90%.
Given these numbers it’s understandably that the win by Donald Trump came as a big and profound shock for the majority of New Yorkers.
On Wednesday, an artist started handing out post it to reeling New Yorkers in the Union Square subway station. The mission: write down your feelings and heal. Subway Therapy.
“Subway Therapy is about making people smile, laugh, and feel less stress,” the creator of the project, Matthew “Levee” Chavez, wrote on his website.
By now, the post-it wall spans several tunnels and is a beautiful and powerful statement of New Yorkers coming together. Take a look.
Thousands of protestors marched down Fifth Avenue today, marking it the fourth day of continuous anti-Trump protests in New York.
Across the boroughs, New Yorkers voted overwhelmingly for Clinton (almost 80% in Brooklyn, close to 90% on Manhattan and Bronx).
Given these numbers it’s understandably that Trump’s surprising success left many New Yorkers looking for ways to show their anger. Or just a place to meet likeminded people.
“This makes me so happy,” said one woman in her twenties looking around the march. All around, there was a tremendous amount of positive energy, and the march didn’t only serve as an expression of free speech and political will, it also was like a big therapy session.
It was the first time many New Yorkers felt okay again all week.
The peaceful protest was a wild mix of ages, genders and races, and so where the causes they were promoting in their signs and chants.
My body, my choice. Her body, her choice.
I object the president elect.
Love trumps hate.
No hate. No fear.
This is what democracy looks like.
Racist, sexist, anti-gay, Donald Trump go away.
We are the popular vote.
Climate change is real. Protect the EPA.
Black lives matter.
