The Indigenous Peoples March, the March for Life and the Women’s March all spread out around the District this weekend.

Protesters calling for rights and representation for indigenous people and abortion rights took the streets around the National Mall Friday. The next day, the third-annual Women’s March – with fewer attendees and high-profile speakers – took place with protesters marching to Freedom Plaza.
