At 8 a.m. on Saturday morning, Lori Honor, co-founder of Staten Island Women Who March, was already out the door
wearing her pink "pussy hat." She arranged to meet with other marchers at Borough Hall and together they would all ride the ferry to the NYC Women's March 2018.
"I want a boat load of women with pink hats," she said. And that's exactly what she got.
The Staten Island Women Who March, Move Forward Staten Island, Wagner College students and many other Staten
Islanders -- most wearing iconic pink hats -- met at 9 a.m. at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal.
More than 120,000 reportedly marched the streets of New York, and hundreds of those attendees were Staten Islanders.
Each person marched for his or her own personal reasons.
Rev. Terry Troia marched for the DREAMers. Lori Honor marched for her son in the Marines and women's rights,. And
Roxanne Mustafa marched for immigrants, women's rights, healthcare, as well as for other women who were
unable to march.
Timothy MacLeod, 7, marched for equal rights and "to tell Trump time's up."
Julienne Verdi, founder of Move Forward Staten Island, marched as a pregnant mother, as well as "for being a survivor of
intimate partner violence, for being an enrollee of the Affordable Care Act, a former patient of Planned Parenthood of
New York City, and a granddaughter of an undocumented immigrant."
The streets were filled with chants and cheers about demanding justice and rights for women, LGBTQ, immigrants,
and other groups.
