Wood River Valley community members and local organizations are planning a Ketchum Women’s March for Saturday, Jan. 18, at 11 a.m. at the Ketchum Town Square. In addition to a march through town, the event will include music and talks by local community activists, students and elected officials on issues that will include climate change, immigration, equity and the upcoming elections. All ages and both genders are welcome.
According to organizers, the mission of the Women’s March is to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create social change.
One of the speakers this year will be state Rep. Muffy Davis, who says participating in the first Women’s March in 2017 inspired her to run for office. Davis was subsequently elected to the Legislature representing District 26, which includes the Wood River Valley.
