Longmont Represented at Women’s March in Denver

During the presidential campaign of 2016 Donald Trump promised that he would unite the people of the United States. On Saturday, January 21st, that promise came true. He united not only the U.S. but the rest of the world, to stand together in a unifying global Women’s March to support human rights.

A group e traveled by bus from Longmont to The Women’s March on Denver to be part of that global proclamation that violation of anyone’s human rights will not be tolerated.

The Women’s March was an effort to send a message of peace, love, and unity to all that would listen. In Denver, it’s estimated that over 100,000 people participated in the peaceful march. WomensMarch.com estimates that over four million women, children, and men took part in peaceful marches across all 7 continents.

The marches in the U.S. were part of a global change that began yesterday. Some are calling it the start of a revolution but everyone is saying that it’s time for people to join together and fight for human rights for everyone.

Women, men, children, immigrants, Native Americans, Muslims, African Americans, Latinos, Asians, and members of the LGBT community, and people of all ages and classes came together peacefully and loudly stating that they’ve had enough — they’re going to fight for everyone’s human rights.
