It's been one year since Donald Trump was elected president. It's also the anniversary of the protests the presidential inauguration sparked.

This year, those protests reignited across the country including in our own back yard.

"It's great to see people of green bay to co me out and talk about what needs to be done in our community, not just in the nation's capital," said Pam Malin, marcher.

Even though it's called the women's march, thousands of men, women and children are marching for what they say is equality for all.

"Isn't it important to everyone, really? I mean, isn't that sort of a fundamental principal of a good life?" said Mike Grimm, marcher.

Organizers said online the march's main goals are to celebrate women of color in our area, as well as help people navigate voting laws so they can get to the polls in November.

"We're seeing more people standing up for the things that are happening in our country that are abominable and that needs to end,” said Sandy Pomerening, marcher.

While some voiced displeasure, many honked in support as the march went past and organizers say they hope it'll go all the way to the voting booth this November.
