Maryland Preps for a Busy Inauguration and Protest Weekend in January

In the Carroll County community of Manchester, Christopher Tomlinson is planning his trip to Washington Jan. 20 to see the inauguration of Donald J. Trump.

The 30-year-old went to four Trump rallies in 2016, and “thought I should be there to complete the journey.”

In the Mount Washington neighborhood of Baltimore, Jennifer Downs is helping to organize four busfuls of women to go to the Women’s March on Washington, a demonstration scheduled for the day after the inauguration to promote inclusion and multiculturalism — values they say are under attack by Trump and his supporters.

“We feel we’re making a strong statement,” she said.
