‘Together we are strong’: New Yorkers are filling their subway with inspiring anti-Trump notes
‘Anger can be power if you know how to use it’
New Yorkers have been writing Post-It notes on the subway, reacting to Donald Trump’s election and sharing defiant messages about the future.
Apparently the notes were started by an artist known as Levee, who posted some in the underpass between the 1 train and the L at 14th Street and 6th Avenue.
After the notes built up all weekend at the Union Square stop, we chose some of our favorites. As we took pictures, a young woman posted a note saying ‘For my daughter, Emma. Love ALWAYS trumps hate.’
She told us: “She’s three weeks old.”
Of the hundreds of Post-Its, many still express the anger people feel.
Most are intended to inspire us in the weeks and months ahead.
Girl power is stronger than ever and with “Pussy Grabs Back,” women are just getting started.
The messages assure people this isn’t the end of their fight, and some even do it with a bit of humor.
Others chose to share something a bit more personal.
New Yorkers are angry, determined and they’re not afraid to show it. But they all want to get the same message across — that they’re all in this together, and they’re not going anywhere.
