Women's march held in Alexandria
The third annual Women's March came to Alexandria Saturday afternoon, and subzero wind chills did not deter a few dozen people from participating in a six-block walk that began and ended at the Douglas County Library.
The walk was part of a national effort to hold marches in Washington, D.C., and other cities across the country. The local march, which was organized by Indivisible West-Central MN, was held at 1 p.m. when the temperature was zero and the wind chill was -14.
Following the Alexandria march, a rally was held with speakers, music and coffee.
A website for the event claimed that the first march in 2017 inspired hundreds of women to run, millions more to vote, and dozens to win elected office.
