Taos remembers Women's March

A local take on a national moment

Posted

On the anniversary of the 2017 Women’s March on Washington, community members in Taos gathered Saturday (Jan. 20) for a march of their own that led their crowd from Taos Plaza to Kit Carson Park.

Nearly 200 people gathered for the march, some wearing pink hats, sporting signs touting respect for women and other slogans against the current Presidential administration. Organizers said they wanted to keep the march apolitical, and said the main focus of the rally was to encourage those present to register and vote in local, state and federal elections.

Demonstrators of all ages turned out for the march which was concluded by a ceremony consisting of speakers and music at Kit Carson Park.
