Last year, the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration, women in major cities across America organized ‘Women’s marches’ to speak out against a variety of causes and issues. The largest march on January 21st, 2017 was in Washington, DC, where an estimated 440,000 people filled the streets – many wearing those now iconic ‘pink hats’.
In Charlotte, over 25,000 people gathered to march through the streets of our city, according to the CMPD;
It wasn’t just women who marched – both men and women of all ages and races joined in.
The march included a wide variety of messages and agendas.
Now the same group that organized last year’s event is hoping to flood the streets of Uptown Charlotte once again, on January 20th, 2018;
According to their website, “Charlotte Women’s March advocates for equity and equality for all peoples; civic engagement; science and education; and women’s health.”
