More local supporters have joined the cause of the annual Women’s March to speak their minds and make their voices heard.
Eight women speakers shared their stories to inspire and empower others in the crowd. They celebrated the successes of women in leadership .. like the election of our own Ruth Buffalo as the first Native American Democratic woman in the North Dakota Legislature. They marched, despite the cold, holding their fists and signs high.
“I feel like as smaller communities, sometimes we feel like we get left out on these bigger events. So, for women and the Native American community just to come together, was really great,” says Frankee Hall, Women’s March Speaker.
Minot wasn’t the only town in North Dakota to take part.
Supporters also marched in Bismarck to show their solidarity with the movement.
