ELECTION 2016

Love Is In the Air at an Anti-Trump Protest in New York City

Photographed by Micol Sabbadini

Milan-based artist and photographer Micol Sabbadini didn’t know what to expect when attending an anti-Trump protest the week he won the presidential election. But what she saw was inspiring. “There were parents with their young kids, elderly people with walkers, students, men and women of every ethnicity, New Yorkers thanking the NYPD for their service,” she said. “They were not protesting the results of the election, they were protesting the inflammatory remarks Donald Trump made in his presidential campaign, the sentiments of hate and division his words have inspired, and the policies that would bring America backwards instead of forwards.” Here, a selection of her photographs from the peaceful protest.
