On Jan. 21, an estimated three to four million people took part in what is likely the largest protest in U.S. history, the Women's March. While the primary march took place in Washington D.C., with more than 500,000 in attendance at that location, there were "sister marches" around the globe, spanning all seven continents. It is estimated that 90,000-100,000 attended the Women's March in St. Paul.
The intent of marchers was to promote civil rights, gender equality, diversity and inclusion.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 320-632-4007.
