Four local rallies on Saturday—Long Island City, Snug Harbor, Grand Army Plaza and Washington Square Park drew hundreds in solidarity with the Women’s March in Washington DC.
The messages sent were in opposition to President Trump’s agenda particularly the rush to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Dedicated to Ginsburg’s legacy and along with fighting Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination were demands of justice for Breonna Taylor.
In Washington Square Park many families with children joined the marchers as they headed down Broadway to meet up with marchers from Brooklyn on Wall Street. Thousands of women rallied in Washington DC and similar marches took place around the country.
