Toledoans join hundreds of thousands in DC for Women's March on Washington

By  | 

WASHINGTON (Gray DC) - A day after inauguration, men and women from across the country poured into our nation's capital once again for the Women's March on Washington. Two local people made the trip looking to have their voices heard.

Kristin Hady, Toledo, says she is marching because the new president is threatening her ideals.

Men and women from all over, in Washington D.C. fighting for what they say are their fundamental rights. Toledo's Kristin Hady traveled all the way to the nation's capital to march because she says our new President Donald Trump is against many of her ideals.

"If we don't stand up and show that we're watching and ready, then who will?" said Hady.

Hady says she and many others feel attacked by President Trump when he talks about things like Muslim registries and repealing the Affordable Care Act.

"The biggest takeaway from this march is you get that passion and that fervor, and you have to take it home. It can’t end here," said Hady.

Toledo's Andy Sutter also made the trip to Washington. He says he is worried that hundreds of years of women's rights are at risk with this new administration.

"As much as I disagree with what he stands for, I hope he succeeds because the other option is even worse," said Sutter.

The March's principles include nonviolence and attacking evil forces, not evil people. Sutter says he thinks the march will be effective.

"With any luck there are enough people here in solidarity that women's rights and reproductive rights will be considered more carefully than they have been," said Sutter.

Both Sutter and Hady say they'll continue fighting for these principles as they make their way back to Toledo.
