Braving single-digit temperatures, several hundred people marched to the Minnesota State Capitol on Saturday — one of a number of women’s marches held across the country.
They waived signs in support of everything from abortion rights to immigrants and refugees as they marched from Western Sculpture Park in St. Paul to the Capitol. There were cheers and chants for women’s rights and gay rights, and talk of a renewed push for an Equal Rights Amendment at the Legislature.
The Minnesota march was one of dozens held across the nation. The original march, held the day after Trump was inaugurated in 2017, drew hundreds of thousands of people in Washington D.C. and an estimated 90,000-100,000 in Minnesota.
Many who attended the Minnesota march on Saturday said they were concerned about the direction the country is headed.
