In this timely Untold Story of Central Minnesota, Arts & Cultural Heritage Producer Jeff Carmack brings us excerpts from the 2019 Women’s March in St. Cloud.
As part of an international event with hundreds of sister marches in cities everywhere, over 150 central Minnesotans braved the below-zero temperatures at Lake George on Saturday, January19, 2019, to march past the Great River Regional Library, down St. Germain Street, and back to Tech High School where a lively and warm indoor rally was held.
The ten speakers represented a diverse mix of the community with an equally diverse collection of topics of concern, and they also showed how the movement itself is evolving beyond just marching and protesting.
The concerns shared within this podcast may be difficult for some folk to hear, but nonetheless, they are the issues that our community members are faced with every day of their lives.
