(Greater Dakota News Service)- One year after President Donald Trump was sworn into office, South Dakota women, men and families will be marching in Pierre, Rapid City, Sioux Falls and Vermillion tomorrow (Sat.) as part of the second Women’s March.
Rapid City resident Suzanne Ludicello was in the nation’s capital for last year’s Women’s March on Washington, but says she’ll march with her South Dakota neighbors tomorrow. She says if the first march was inspirational, this year it should be an invocation to action.
Organizers say this year’s Women’s March celebrates accomplishments achieved over the past year, and Ludicello hopes it’s also an incentive for people to get involved politically, before the midterm elections.
To Ludicello, the second march signifies how much energy has been generated in recent years around women’s rights and human rights.
The march in Pierre starts at 12:30pm tomorrow (Sat.) at the State Capitol.
More than two-million people participated in the global event last year, with 673 marches across the United States and in 32 countries.
