Montrose Women March walked down Townsend before holding a presentation at the courthouse. Event participants expressed concerns for national threats to reproductive rights, as well as the consequences for underserved communities who face challenges regarding reproductive needs and support before, during and after birth.
The presentation given dealt with sexual assault statistics and personal stories from speakers, while marchers in attendance also expressed a desire for quality sex and reproductive education for everyone, not just young girls.
To get a sense of the energy at the event, listen to Jayne Bilberry introduce herself at the courthouse in the audio clip below.
