MIDLAND, Mich. - Marching for women and human rights continued right here in mid-Michigan but this time the a specific message was highlighted.

Exactly one year later Saginaw Street in Midland was once again filled with people on Sunday, this time for the Power to the Polls march.

Over three hundred men, women and children held up signs encouraging voters to hit the polls in November; even some furry friends got in the action.

Even though some of the issues that drove last year's march like women’s rights and the status of dreamers were mentioned, organizers say the goal of this year's march was to get people to actively make the changes they want to see.

“This is what democracy looks like, getting off the sidelines of our government and our country and actively engaging in the work of making this country better,” said Sarah Schultz of the Women in Michigan Action Network. “There's nothing more patriotic than that and you're seeing that played out right here in midland and all over the county”.
