Midland's Power to the Polls March promotes activism, voting
MIDLAND, Mich. --It was day two of marches all over the nation, celebrating the one year anniversary of the Women’s March but Sunday’s march had a specific message.
Exactly one year later Saginaw Street in Midland was once again filled with people, 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 is 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. There's nothing more patriotic than that and you're seeing that played out right here in Midland and all over the county,” said Sarah Schultz.
Sunday was the final day of marching but the Women of Michigan Action Network has plenty of activities planned throughout the rest of the year.
