Protest and Celebration in Our Shared Spaces
This program will explore how public spaces are venues for civil disobedience, protest, and celebration. We will also examine how notions of public change with the times and across cultures; and the implications of private entities increasing their role in providing and regulating open spaces.

The same day, hundreds of sister marches took place across the country and around the world. For some, it was their first time marching, for others, the continuation of a decades-long fight for human rights, dignity, and justice. For all, it was an opportunity to make their voices heard. It was the largest one-day protest in American history.
