Burien was represented at the historic Women’s March in Seattle on Saturday (Jan. 21), as the Kleitsch family participated – along with an estimated 175,000 others.
This event is considered to be the largest-ever demonstration in U.S. history, with estimates of over 3.3 million participants.
The Seattle version started at Judkins Park at 10 a.m., then wound its way 3.6 miles through downtown before ending late in the afternoon at the Seattle Center.
Estimates are that Seattle was the sixth most attended one in the nation, just behind Boston.
