St. Paul, MN – Tens of thousands of marchers, predominantly women, are in the streets of Saint Paul today, Jan. 21.

According to a statement from protest organizers, “The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized and threatened many of us. We will march in numbers too great for administration to ignore on their first day in office. We march and stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families.”

This is the second day of major anti-Trump protests in the Twin Cities. On Friday, Jan. 20, 6000 people marched through the streets of Minneapolis.
