People's Rally in SC State Capital: #WhyWeMarch

Women, men and children of all ages gathered on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017, for a People's Rally and Strategy Summit at the South Carolina State House. The rally was planned as a sister event for the Women's March on Washington, D.C. Attendees marched to Columbia's Music Farm where activists and community leaders gathered together to speak about the current political climate and what it means for the progressive movement in South Carolina.

Palmetto Scene spoke with attendees about why it was important for them to be present at the event, which continued with many attendees, despite heavy rain. #WhyWeMarch
