OKC's second Women's March
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) —
Going on right now, Oklahoma City is participating in its' second Women's March.
The event started at 11 a.m. this morning, Jan. 20, at the Oklahoma State Capitol. The event will not end until 1:30 p.m.
Walkers in the march can be seen as any race, age or gender.
The organizer, T. Sheri Dickerson, organized the march for OKC for women who are are still concerned, still angry, still searching for an alternative to the anti-democratic, anti-woman, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ, anti-people of color, anti-working- and middle-class American rhetoric that constitutes the current body politic.
"We are not coming to the Capitol in opposition to a person or a political party," T. Sheri Dickerson, march organizer, stated. "We are coming to the capitol to say NO to the horrific, harmful, anti-democratic filth that spews around us every day. We are women in a state that prides itself on decency and community. We want to bring back that community, that decency, that Oklahoma Standard. We do not understand why our so-called leaders have bankrupted our education system, destroyed our public safety net, attempted to marginalize our sisters and brothers, laid waste to our environment. And we're ready to do something about it - with our voices. With our ballots. With every fiber of our being."
There are other march's going on throughout the United States today.
