#MARCHONMAIN Sundance to Salt Lake
“Sundance has always been a platform for change: not only for filmmakers and filmmaking, but also for big ideas for the future. If there's anything I learned in the last year, it's that we need to be louder and stronger than ever about what we believe in, so I joined some incredible women from around the country to bring our voices together in the streets of Park City. The Women’s March on Main will be an opportunity for the creative community and those in Utah to stand beside those in D.C." Chelsea Handler
Those in Utah braved extreme weather conditions and stood beside not only Handler and those in D.C., but 8,000 other marchers (Jenny Slate, Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, John Legend, Jason Schwartzman, Chris O’Dowd included). Ori Media, from the balcony of the Canon Lounge, documented the historic gathering of supporters.

Salt Lake City marched on the following Monday with equally terrible weather (but a few less celebrities) drawing a crowd of more than 6,000. Participators on the first day of the Utah State Legislative Session, gathered at City Creek Park and walked the stretch to the Capitol Rotunda (inside the Capitol building) to voice their group support for equal rights for women, people of all genders, children of all genders, families, LGBTQIA+ community, people of all abilities, climate-change advocates, and many other marginalized members of society. Alexa from Studio Elevn participated and documented her experience.
