On Saturday, January 21th, something amazing happened. A women’s march was held in Washington, DC and hundreds of sister cities throughout the United States. The march was in protest of the new administration’s views on rights dear to women’s hearts; climate change, planned parenthood, women’s health, racial profiling, civil rights, LGBT rights, immigrant rights, environmental justice and ending violence against women. In Raleigh, 17,000 supports marched with family and friends. Over 500,00 people attended the march in Washington, even our own Mary Hartzell from Urban Durham Realty.
