The presidential inauguration today has provoked strong feelings from students of all political beliefs. Locally and in Washington DC, Maine West students are using this historic moment to make their voices heard. Using Instagram, the Westerner @mwwesterner will be telling the story of today's inauguration through the eyes of Maine West students who are going to Washington DC to see Donald Trump become president. You'll be able to see what it's like to be in the capital for this change of power. Then, tomorrow, other Maine West students will be marching in Washington DC to protest Trump's policies on immigration, religious freedom, women's rights, education and heath care, as part of more than 200,000 people participating in the Women's March on Washington. You will be able to experience the protest and see the march unfold through the Westerner Instagram @mwwesterner. The Westerner will be reporting, too, from the Chicago protests tomorrow. See history in the making and join in the conversation by following the Westerner @mwwesterner on Instagram and Twitter. Don't wait! Get out your phones and follow @mwwesterner now!
