March Sunday Promotes Civil Liberties
Written by Andrew-Rossi on January 16, 2018
For the second year in a row, a gathering at City Park will promote human rights, civil liberties, and social justice.
That’s according to the organizers of the Women and Allies March, which will take place this Sunday, January 21st, from noon to 2 p.m. The event is sponsored by the non-profit organization Wyoming Rising-Northwest, and is part of a larger movement that organizers say is not a protest, but a celebration of democracy.
Harriet Bloom-Wilson, one of the members of Wyoming Rising-Northwest, appeared on KODI’s Partyline show last week. She says that they will be marching around City Park to promote, quote, “decency, freedom, justice, and engaging in our democracy,” endquote.
Bloom Wilson says that the march last year drew participants from all over the Big Horn Basin and as far north as Red Lodge, Montana. Over 500 people from a wide range of demographics gathered in Cody’s City Park and marched around the block, carrying signs and listening to speakers and musicians who promoted civil liberties for women and others who have experienced discrimination or oppression.
This year’s march on Sunday will coincide with marches across the country and in Wyoming, with events being organized in Cheyenne and Casper.
