March for reproductive rights

A little more than 30 people marched through Sunnyside as part of a national day of Women’s Marches that took place Saturday, October 2. Organizer Chelsea Dimas says it was an awesome turnout for the first march of its kind in the city. “We wanted to send a message to lawmakers that reproductive freedom is for everyone and should not be controlled by the government.” Dimas says in addition to the few dozen people who walked, there was a handful of cars that had displays of support for the group. “I’m hoping this becomes an ongoing thing because I want to bring attention to a lot of social justice issues,” said Dimas. The march began at the Fiesta Foods parking lot and went down to Lincoln Ave. along the Lower Valley Pathway.
