On the march

On the march

The Reno Women’s March on Washington is one of more than 200 demonstrations expected to take place in cities across the country on Jan. 21, the day after President-designate Trump takes office. The rally is being called a “sister march” of the larger Women’s March on Washington that will take place in the nation’s capital on the same day. Similar marches are also scheduled for cities in 28 other countries around the world.

The Reno march will take place between 9 and 11 a.m. The route starts at the U.S. District Court, 400 S. Virginia St., and ends at City Plaza.

A Facebook page created for the event asks readers to join their “fellow concerned community members in a peaceful demonstration of solidarity, inclusion, and unequivocal rejection of hateful rhetoric displayed and espoused by the pending Administration.” So far, more than 1,000 people have confirmed their attendance via the Facebook event page, which can be viewed here: http://bit.ly/2jw68Cg.
