Galleries, On Campus GALLERY: Hoodies and Hijabs March Posted February 9, 2017 In protest of President Trump’s recent executive order on immigration, members of the Iowa State community gathered for a “Hoodies and Hijabs Solidarity March.” Photos by Sam Greene Gathering at the Fountain of the Four Seasons in front of the Memorial Union, protesters rehearsed chants and discussed the purpose of their march. Though motivated by President Trump’s executive order which barred citizens of seven muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, the rally took issue with a broad range of human rights issues. A diverse crowd arrived to support the cause and many spoke, showing solidarity with those affected by the ban. The march began at the Memorial Union and continued past Curtiss, across Central Campus to Beardshear, and ended in front of Parks Library in the agora, or “free speech zone.” In front of Beardshear, the message of the march shifted to the protester’s displeasure with Trump’s administration. In addition to students and faculty affected by the travel ban, members of the school’s administration delivered addresses to reassure students that the university will ensure those targeted will be safe. Students and faculty alike listened to the stories of those affected by the ban. The marchers expressed that the students of Iowa State will not tolerate the nationalist ideologies pushed by the president and his administration, and that they will continue to protest until all are welcome in America.
