More than protest: Richland Women's March about connections, networking

Women in over 300 cities across the world gathered to celebrate the third ever women’s march.

Tri-Cities advocates gathered at Jon Dam Plaza in support of social and political issues they say they’d like to fix.

Speakers remembered their own, or shared-experiences with vulnerability, growth and personal-responsibility.

Dori Luzzo Gilmour told Action News she was marching in solidarity with asylum seekers at our nation’s southern border.

The Richland woman says she feels it’s her job as a Constitutionalist to call out what she says are illegal acts by the Trump administration.

Gilmour says today’s march is about more than simply being a woman.

“It's a life issue,” she explained. “We believe in life and respecting our Constitution. As Americans and as patriots we have to stand up for things. I stand up for other women seeking a better life for their children.”

After the march organizers hosted a resource fair.

They said they wanted the women to network and form local connections, eventually working together to improve the lives of women all over the Tri-Cities.
