Women’s March of Southern Oregon

The Women’s March of Southern Oregon was joined by an estimated 10,000 people in Ashland. This was not an anti-trump march, but a march of solidarity for women’s rights.

We also recorded the complete video of Kate , a 17-year old Ashland High School student who gave a speech that began “Dear Mr. Trump” and fired up the crowd.
