My First Protest
By Lauren Kuehmeier (Freshman at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY)
Last night, I attended my first protest.
I witnessed fear. I witnessed outrage. I witnessed tears. I witnessed love. I witnessed support.
For the first time, I saw what democracy really looks like- and it’s incredible.
To all my fellow artists, activists and Americans: we have work to do and places to go.
Last night, I photographed my first protest. It certainly won’t be the last.
