Sundance: Chelsea Handler, John Legend, More Converge on Main Street for AntiTrump March
publish date: 2017-01-21
Some thousands of women and men converged on Main Street on Saturday morning (Jan. 21) for a Park City sister march and rally that called for the respect of human rights with regards to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, immigration and health care.
Brandishing signs that read “Make America Compassionate Again” and “We Live in Trumpled Times," the crowd, roughly half female and half male, braved the snow and 22 degree temperatures, led by Chelsea Handler, who was inspired to organize a Park City march thanks to a THR article that addressed how Sundance’s notoriously liberal festival-goers would will mark Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration.
The Women’s March on Main coincided with a massive Washington sister march as well as some 350 similar events taking place in all 50 states as well as 20 countries around the world. Joining Handler on the dais were speakers Aisha Tyler, Connie Britton, Benjamin Bratt, Maria Bello, Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski and An Inconvenient Sequel executive producer Laurie David.
