Approximately four million people marched around the United States the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration on Saturday, January 21st, 2016. More than 590,000 were in Washington DC, having travelled across the world to make their voices heard at the very centre of American power. SASHALYNILLO, a Latin American visual artist, was one of them, having travelled from her home in the Bronx, NY, to draw the march from the ground.
