The Women’s March on Washington, scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017, Day One of the new Trump presidency, has spawned like marches in many of the states, including Ohio.
People who are concerned about the potential marginalization of others will gather together in Cleveland, Cincinnati and a number of other cities and towns throughout Ohio to make their voices heard in a nationwide appeal to President Trump for the fair and balanced treatment of all people regardless of race, gender, economic status or sexual identity.
While there will be many people from Ohio attending the march in Washington, D.C., there will be others who for various reasons cannot attend the Washington, D.C. event or choose to participate locally.
