(APPLAUSE)

Today's ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another.

But we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.

Trump’s inaugural speech strongly echoes the themes that were central to his campaign: a populist, anti-establishment message combined with a promise to transfer power to “the people.” Trump tapped into a feeling among many voters that the political system was broken and the Washington establishment was not serving them; that feeling led many voters — especially in the nation’s Rust Belt — to reject traditional politicians and instead elect a real estate developer and entertainment mogul with no political experience to the nation’s highest office.

The establishment protected itself but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. That all changes starting right here and right now. Because this moment is your moment. It belongs to you.

Attacking the political establishment of both parties was a hallmark of Trump’s campaign. He often described the nation’s leaders as “stupid people” and promised that it will be “so easy” to create new jobs, negotiate more favorable trade deals, reform the nation’s health care system, and strengthen border security.

Hollywood Spiritual Guru, Civil Rights Activists Preview D.C. Women's March-lovely Art postest sig






Hollywood Spiritual Guru, Civil Rights Activists Preview D.C. Women's March — And Take a Breath

8:24 PM PST 1/20/2017 by Erik Hayden







Protesters hold up signs designed by Shepard Fairey for the Women's March in Washington during a McPherson Square demonstration on Jan. 20 in Washington D.C.

"Our country has a majority of good people — good, like-minded people. And when you're out there among them you're going to feel a lot better," attorney Lisa Bloom told attendees.

After a chaotic day that saw scattered protests across the nation's capital over Donald Trump's swearing-in ceremony, around 200 activists gathered at local church to take a breath — and to make final preparations for the Women's March on Washington on Saturday.

The event, titled "Rising to the Occasion: Pre-March Practice,
" served as a reflective gathering space where organizers, protest veterans and newcomers could introduce themselves in what was described (and was) a calming atmosphere geared "toward love, action and solidarity."

...................
All speakers offered rallying cries, but also sought to connect the people in the room at St. Stephen and the Incarnation Episcopal Church. (When asked for a show of hands about who had come to the event from out of town, a vast majority of those seated raised their hands.)

"I don't know if any of you went to the protests today, it is so energizing," said Bloom. "It is so inspiring. The majority of this country does not like our incoming President, right? The majority of this country is with us. Our country has a majority of good people — good, like-minded people. And when you're out there among them you're going to feel a lot better."

Inside the peaceful church setting, the walls were covered with signs pointing toward phone numbers to call for legal support for #DisruptJ20 protestors along with a number for "calls from jail," the contact info for a medic and a tips line. Multiple people inside, quietly sitting in chairs, were wearing hats in the style of the "Pussyhat Project."

And, this crowd was also reminded: There are plans to hold a "mass meditation" at the Lower Senate Park at 10 am tomorrow. On the way out of the two hour gathering, handfuls of various Shepard Fairey poster designs were given out to attendees, for use at Saturday's big march on the National Mall, a star-studded gathering that includes a large roster of Hollywood names (Patricia Arquette, Debra Messing, America Ferrera and many, many more)..................................
