Women’s March on Wyoming Scheduled For Cheyenne On Saturday
The second annual Women's March on Wyoming is scheduled for Jan. 20 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m., according to march organizers.
The Cheyenne march will be held in conjunction with similar events across the country.
Last year's Cheyenne march drew an estimated 1,500 to 2,000 people expressing opposition to President Trump and in favor of LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights, environmental rights and a variety of other progressive causes.
According to a release from event organizers this year's march is ''a response to enduring nearly a year of divisive, and harmful rhetoric and policy divisions from the President's administration and federal, state and local elected officials."
The event will get underway at 10 a.m. on Saturday at the Cheyenne Depot Plaza at 121 W.15th. Street in Cheyenne. The featured speaker will be Arshi Rizwani-Nisley, a Cheyenne educator.
Event organizers say that while the event will be led by women, anyone is welcome to join the march.
