On January 21, over 600 women (and men) from New Bern and the surrounding region joined with over 3 million people worldwide, in the New Bern sister march for the Women’s Marches in Washington, DC. The event was organized by the Democratic Women of Craven County, energizing the people of Craven County to stand up to Donald Trump and his degradation of women and opposition to the rights of women and LGBT people.

Turnout was incredible: organizers were only expecting about 50 people to join us, and we were all astounded at the amount of energy in Craven County for standing up for every American’s rights.

Check out the New Bern Sun Journal‘s article about the march.
