The Greatest Things To Happen In 2017 That You Might Have Missed

2017 came with a lot of bad news: natural disasters, acts of domestic terrorism, and not to mention everything that went on in the political sphere. But while 2017 dealt us a terrible hand, we’re here to remind you that not everything was bad and that some of the best examples of hope came from where you’d least expect it.

The year started off on a strong note with the 2017 Women’s March. Held on the day following President Trump’s inauguration, millions of women gathered for a worldwide protest to not only advocate for women’s rights and equality but also other human rights and social issues including immigration reform, health care, LBGTQ rights, religious freedom, and racial inequality.
