Photojournalist John Hook captured the scene on inauguration day. If you were there and took photos, we’d be happy to share those with the Civil Beat community too. Please e-mail them to We’ll try to include as many on the site as possible. Be sure to include your name in the e-mail so that we can credit you!

A good reason not to give

We know not everyone can afford to pay for news right now, which is why we keep our journalism free for everyone to read, listen, watch and share. 

But that promise wouldn’t be possible without support from loyal readers like you.

Make a gift to Civil Beat today and help keep our journalism free for all readers. And if you’re able, consider a sustaining monthly gift to support our work all year-round.
