Lead instructors Frank Spencer and Yvette Montero Salvatico marched in Washington, D.C. as part of the Women’s March on Washington. An estimated one million women (and men) marched to “join in diversity” and “send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights…there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.”
