I had the pleasure of visiting Washington, D.C. for the first time in my life from September 18 to September 20 as part of the MomsRising delegation to the We Won’t Wait Summit, which is dedicated to “elevating the voices of women of color, low-income and poor women, immigrant women, and young women to call for a policy agenda that promotes economic security and communities that thrive.”
The trip was incredibly short and the summit was packed full of content so I had very little time to take in the sights, but there was NO way that I could not get some sightseeing in because it’s taken me 45 years to get to the nation’s capital. Thankfully, many of the monuments and memorials located in the National Mall are open 24 hours a day.
The photos I took do not do the experience of seeing these historical treasures at night justice, but I’m sharing the pictures anyway because it really was a remarkable experience.
Have you ever been?
I showed you mine, now show me yours.
