MILWAUKEE -- It is a protest that made history as one of the largest in the country. For the second year in a row, the Women's March was taking place in cities across the country -- as well as in the City of Milwaukee.
Thousands of people gathered to rally at MacArthur Square in front of the Milwaukee County Courthouse on Saturday, Jan. 20. It included a diverse crowd of genders and ages.
The movement initially largely focused on women's rights. But now, the movement has changed.
"It's a very pivotal time for us to think about racism and how we can make change to it," said Astar Herndon. "We still have a culture of work that is high in sexual harassment and assault."
It also includes civil, immigrant, disability, LGBTQIA, reproductive rights and environmental justice to name a few.
Passion came even on a state level. State Sen. Lena Taylor spoke, sharing a message of action.
"Women should be engaged. I want them to vote. I want them to make their voices heard. I want them to run for office. I want them to support candidates that that support the issues that are important to them," Taylor said.
This weekend marks the anniversary of Pres. Donald Trump's inauguration.
