A year after thousands in Chico joined together to protest president trump's inauguration, on Saturday, possibly nearly double took to the streets in downtown for the “Women's March.”

Women, men and children of all ages came together for this major movement.

Marchers shared their support for social and political change.

Other Chicoans said the recent “Me Too” movement inspired them to come out on Saturday.

"I believe in the beauty and diversity of this country. I believe that's where our strength is,” said Malia Hayashida-Knight, a marcher in the event.

“Some people get brought down because they're a certain type of gender and different colors,” said Marley and Citlalin.

Representatives from organizations such as Planned Parenthood and “Chico Peace and Justice Center” were also at the “Women's March.”

A fire weather watch has been issued from 1pm Monday to 11am Wednesday in the Valley and foothills due to dry and gusty conditions. We'll warm up next week but next weekend is looking much much cooler and wet.
