Community Members Contribute to Women's March

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Dozens of people from the Grand Valley came together Sunday afternoon to make their voices heard.

Members of the community were invited to Mesa County Central Library to create posters and signs for Martin Luther King's Day and next weekend's Women's March.

More than 50 people came out to create and send out a variety of messages --expressing their views.

This Saturday will be the second annual Women's March starting at 10:30 a.m. to walk from Lincoln Park to the Old County Courthouse --where they'll be speeches --followed by an action party at Mesa Theater.

"For people to meet other people, give them a chance to express themselves about their concerns and best hopes for our country and for our community and to feel engaged in the political process," said volunteer Kayla Dodson. 

The MLK Day March will be Monday at Handy Chapel at 1 p.m. where people will walk to City Hall and the mayor will read a proclamation.

People are invited to continue walking to CMU where they'll be an evening presentation.
