A state Senate candidate and former Syracuse mayoral hopeful are among those scheduled to speak at the upcoming women’s march in Seneca Falls.
Shauna O’Toole is vying for the Democratic nomination in the 54th Senate District, the seat now held by State Senator Pam Helming. Also speaking in Seneca Falls will be Juanita Perez Williams, the Democratic nominee for Syracuse mayor in 2017, she lost to independent candidate Ben Walsh.
The per-Sisters for Women’s Equality rally will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 20 at the Women’s Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls. The event will commemorate the one-year anniversary of the first women’s marches that were held around the world following President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
More than 10,000 people attended last year’s march in Seneca Falls.
Organizers say the rally will focus on a range of issues, including environmental justice, equal pay and ending racism and sexism.
