The third annual Women’s March in eastern Washington will be held Saturday (Jan. 19) in Omak and Wenatchee, beginning at 11 a.m. in both locations.
The Women’s March movement began in 2017 following the inauguration of Donald Trump. Marches were held in Washington, D.C., and across the world as a symbol of resistance to Trump’s policies on women’s rights, workers’ rights, health care, the environment, immigration, and gun control, among other issues.
Marches are scheduled again this Saturday in Washington, D.C., and in cities across the United States and abroad.
The Omak march will begin at 11 a.m. at the Omak Park on Ash Street between First Avenue and Central Avenue. It is expected to last about one hour. Participants are encouraged to bring signs.
The Wenatchee march begins at 11 a.m. at the Wenatchee Memorial Park on the corner of Orondo Avenue and S. Chelan Avenue. Signs are encouraged, but organizers ask that they not be mounted on sticks.
