Thousands Gather At Indianapolis Women's March

Jan 21, 2017

Around 7,000 people gathered near the Indiana Statehouse Saturday to rally for women’s rights and protest the elections of Donald Trump and former Indiana Governor Mike Pence as President and Vice President.

 


"We come here with one resolve: to say we are not going back,” Rabbi Sandy Eisenberg Sasso told the crowd.

The participants ranged from young children to senior citizens, all promoting messages of equality on a variety of topics including reproductive healthcare, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights and the rights of people of color.

“I believe in women’s rights and clearly they’re under attack now. And we’ve gotta say 'That’s not OK,'” says Cliff Johnson, a march participant.

Some of the signs that were aimed at President Trump, as well as his Vice President, Pence. Among them were panels reading “Love Trumps Hate” and “Fire Mike Pence”.

The event was organized as a sister rally to the Women's March on Washington D.C. and was one of hundreds of similar gatherings across the country Saturday.
