Background and Summary

In response to recent widespread violence and divisive rhetoric, Women’s March Contra Costa County brought more than 800 people together, including local action groups, on Aug. 26 to create the human banner “END HATE!”

The exclamation mark at the end was made up almost entirely of participants dressed in pink and red, many wearing the symbolic “pussy hats” that rapidly gained popularity during the Women’s March after President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

“This message emphasizes that we need to continue efforts to combat divisiveness and come together as one nation committed to the pursuit of liberty and justice for ALL people,” Women’s March Contra Costa County officials said.

At approximately 11 a.m., photographer David B. Page shot the aerial view photo from a helicopter. The event took place on the ball field of Civic Park, 1375 Civic Drive, Walnut Creek. Rep. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Richmond, was there holding the U.S. flag.
