The Arizona Republic today has an updated list of the “sister-marches” in Arizona for the Women’s March on Washington this Saturday. 10 Arizona women’s marches planned for day after Trump inauguration:
The Arizona sister-march locations are Flagstaff, Prescott, Sedona, Jerome, Phoenix, Gold Canyon, Tucson, Green Valley, Yuma and Ajo as of Tuesday afternoon, according to Women’s March on Washington’s official website.
At least 5,000 people are expected to attend the Phoenix march, which will be the biggest in the state and recently secured liability insurance, according to Maya Asher, the statewide coordinator. Tucson is expecting about 2,000 people.
“I’ve grown up in Arizona my whole life and there’s always been a slant towards Arizona being conservative and not supportive of things like this, and this experience has changed my perception of that,” said Asher, 31.
“There’s been so much support and encouragement, especially because we aren’t taking an angle of negativity, of being an anti-Trump march.”
Details on all 10 marches
The 1-mile, family-friendly march will be accessible to wheelchairs and strollers. Organizers plan to have a small stage and podium for speakers and musicians, and they expect to allow more than a dozen community groups to set up informational tables.
