This Year’s Chicago Women’s March A ‘March To The Polls’

Tens of thousands are expected to turn out Saturday morning for the second Women’s March on Chicago. Organizers say this year’s theme is a “march to the polls,” to encourage women and allies to vote. “As we approach local, mid-term, and gubernatorial elections in 2018, it’s even more critical that women are engaged and involved,” said organizer Jessica Scheller in a statement. “If we want to see progress in this city, state, and country we need women’s votes, voices, and leadership.” The rally begins with music and videos at 9:00am at Congress and Columbus in Grant Park. A speaking program is scheduled to begin at 11:00am, and attendees will march to Federal Plaza around 12:30pm. (NBC)
