Crowd Counting Consortium
A public interest project to document crowds and contention in the United States.
The Crowd Counting Consortium’s preliminary count lists over 8,700 protests in the United States, counting every day from the Women’s March of January 21, 2017 through December 31, 2017.
About 74 percent of those protests were either directly against Trump administration policy or on issues that conflicted with the president’s viewpoint (e.g. protests against police shootings of black people).
Overall, we estimate that between 5.9 million and 9 million people protested in the US in 2017.
That's roughly 1.8-2.8 percent of the population of the United States.
We estimate that 89 percent of these people were protesting Trump or his agenda.
