Women’s march in Shawano Saturday

The Shawano Women’s March “Marching Together” is being organized and all are invited, whether they’re a woman or not.

The march begins and ends at Franklin Park in Shawano. It takes place at 11 a.m. Saturday, but it’s recommended to arrive about 10:45 a.m. Issues being embraced are unity and equality, registering and voting, embracing diversity, environmental justice, supporting the Dreamers and healthcare access for all.

The walk will take place down Division State to Main Street, north on Main Street to the Shawano County Courthouse, where there will be songs and a short talk by Georgia Stapleton, who attended the Women’s March in Washington D.C. last year. The walk will conclude back at Franklin Park.

The weather forecast is for partly sunny skies and a high of 42 degrees.
