On Saturday, January 21, 2017, an estimated 3-4 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 over 500,000 in attendance at that location, there were “sister marches” around the globe, spanning all 7 continents. It is estimated that 90,000-100,000 attended the Women’s March in St. Paul, Minnesota. The intent of marchers was to promote civil rights, gender equality, diversity, and inclusion.
The Morrison County Historical Society (MCHS) is interested in gathering stories from local people who took part in the Women’s March, no matter which march location they attended. To that end, there will be an informal gathering hosted by MCHS at The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum, Little Falls, MN, on Saturday, February 11, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. in order to allow Women’s March participants to share their experiences.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 320-632-4007.
