Walkway Over the Hudson was a river of walkers Saturday, men and women. They were there for the Poughkeepsie Women’s March Across the Hudson.
Poughkeepsie residents Lisa Kaul and Paulina Bren, calling themselves first-time activists, organized the march less than two weeks ago.
“We wanted it to be on the Walkway. We wanted to find a space that truly democratic and inclusive,” said Bren. “And also, sort of visually impactful.”
Claudia Jacobs from Goshen marched felt it was important to participate in a local march.
“The message is not to accept the unacceptable,” said Jacobs.
All age groups appeared represented, from a baby in a stroller with a sign “revolutionary in training” to hippie grandmothers.
