Across the river in Orange County, there is a women’s march in Port Jervis that begins at 12:15 after speakers address the crowd at 11:45. First, though, at 10, there is a CommUNITY, emphasis on unity, Fair, at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. The Women’s March on Woodstock kicks off at 11. Participants include newly elected Ulster County Comptroller March Gallagher; Democratic state Senate candidate Michelle Hinchey; award-winning Native American Women's Drum Group - Spirit of Thunderheart; and activist brass marching band Tin Horn Uprising.
