This Saturday, on the first anniversary of Trump's inauguration, the women of Hudson, Columbia County, and beyond, will march down Warren Street to demonstrate resistance, hope, determination, commitment, outrage--any or all of the above.
The weather on Saturday is expected to be mostly sunny and surprising warm--a high of 45 degrees is being predicted. The event begins at 1 p.m. with a rally in Seventh Street Park (a.k.a the Public Square), where seven women, elected officials and activists, will speak: Didi Barrett, NYS Assemblymember, 106th District; Erin Stamper, Democratic campaign organizer; Jabin Ahmed Ruhii, Muslim youth coordinator; Cricket Coleman, Columbia County coroner; Kathy Eldridge, Greenport town supervisor; Tiffany Garriga, Second Ward alderman and Council majority leader; Joyce St. George, activist and organizer.
After the rally, there will be a march down Warren Street, led by women dressed as handmaids, to Front Street and on to Basilica Hudson, where there will be food, more speeches, and music.
Plan to be here on Saturday and be part of this monumental event.
