WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — WOW, Women Organizing for Wilmington hosted the anniversary of the Women’s March in Wilmington this Saturday as other groups gathered nationwide. Hundreds of woman and men showed up for the march.
More than a dozen guest speakers were lined up to talk to the crowd of participants.
People held signs and filled the streets in downtown to make their voices heard.
One of the organizers said this year was a little different than the previous march.
“This year is different in that it’s not so much fueled by anger, although there is some of that, but it’s fueled more by a desire for change and so I’m going to say this year is more about voting,” WOW founding member Lynn Shoemaker said.
The march started at 1 p.m. and lasted until 4 p.m.
