Protests for a kinder world.

Between January 20, 2017 and January 31, 2021, Americans advocated with historic breadth for racial justice, compassionate immigration, gun control, healthcare access, education funding, and the environment. We kept a record of American dissent over this time period by reading local news reports every night and counted at least protests across cities for a kinder world.

Cities with at least one protest for a kinder world between January 20, 2017 and January 31, 2021. Hovering over a city will show a total count of distinct protests found in news articles for that city. Darker circles represent cities with more protests.
