One day after the national Women's March movement, women in Redding marched in support of the movement.

An estimated 1,000 people showed up for Sunday’s event to promote equality for women and many other issues facing the country.

The march started at city hall and went down around the Cypress Street Bridge in Redding.

There have been hundreds of marches around the country, including massive rallies in Los Angeles, New York and Washington D.C.

Action News Now spoke to one congressional candidate who spoke on how important this event is for the Redding community.

“Here in Redding we have found our voice here with women and we are such an important part of joining up with other towns and the region to really promote our progressive goals and our progressive social programs,” said Marty Walters, a congressional candidate.

Organizers say this nationwide event last year was the largest march across the country that had no incidents of violence or infractions.
