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.
