HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) - Close to 50 women and men came out to the Women's March in Houghton on Saturday to make their voices heard.
The march began in downtown Houghton and went along the Portage Lake Lift Bridge.
The Copper Country League of Women Voters was a co-sponsor of the event. This year, the organization has focused in on three principle issues to fight for: Immigration, women’s reproductive rights and climate change.
They hope that the actions of marchers across the country can help shed like on these topics.
“It’s because these issues are not getting the attention that they need. We need a lot of legislative action response to address these issues. There important not only to women, but to the whole community, to the environment, to the planet,” said Barry Fink, President of the Copper Country Women League of Voters.
This is the fourth year of the event, with marches taking place across the country today.
