    WASHINGTON, D.C. - The weather forecast was for rain, and the Drama Dragons were concerned that the paper head of their large pink dragon could be damaged as they marched through the streets of Washington, D.C. on Sunday, April 25. The Drama Dragons, a Warwick-based theater group, participated Sunday in the march, sponsored by National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, the Feminist Majority, National Organization for Women, the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health and the Black Women's Health Imperative. The Washington rally drew an estimated 800,000 to 1.15 million, according to a report in The Washington Post. Police sources told the Post that the rally may have been as large as the Million-Man March, which was estimated at 875,000.
