ONE at the 2013 Inauguration

The past two days have been hustling and bustling in Washington, D.C. As usual, ONE was along for the ride.

Fresh off a busy election season, ONE members and staff gathered on the National Mall to celebrate and congratulate President Obama on a hard-fought election victory at the 2013 Inauguration ceremony. Our favorite quote of the day: “And we must be a source of hope to the poor, the sick, the marginalized, the victims of prejudice –- not out of mere charity, but because peace in our time requires the constant advance of those principles that our common creed describes: tolerance and opportunity, human dignity and justice.”

Here are a few pictures from our big day out.

In addition to attending the ceremony, ONE members took to the frigid streets to camp out and wait to see the taping of Morning Joe. Frozen fingers and toes were well worth it. Here’s why:
