On Jan 20th 2018, Around the World Women’s Marches took place nationw ide. The Women’s March was for all women to show their rights and to let the world know that they have a voice, and they deserve to be heard. Women have an innate ability to be intuitive with people that they truly love, but they have to trust their inner voice. Women of all ages, women of diverse ethnicity, professional women, campesinas marching side by side, mothers marching with their children, transgender women and LGBTQ+ members, and so many male supporters, which truly embraced the chant of “THIS IS WHAT COMMUNITY LOOKS LIKE!” The rally had speakers from ACT for Women and Girls, College of the Sequoias educators and the COS Puente Program, from the Dolores Huerta Foundation, and the LGBTQ+ Source community support group. U.S. Citizens and Dreamers chanted for “Education, Not Deportation!” There was a large turnout of people marching from COS to the Visalia Mall who chanted “¡Sí se puede!” and welcomed the honking of passing cars which added to the support of the Women’s March cause.
