Organizers to hold sister Women’s March in Columbia on Saturday

Downtown Columbia will be the site of a sister march to the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday, with at least two sets of organizers calling for a local rally.

The South Carolina Progressive Network is calling for a “mass rally and strategy summit,” in show of support for the Women’s March on Washington. National and local sister rallies call for the protection of women’s rights, safety, health and families.

Their rally is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m., at the State House and will end at noon with a round-table strategy session at the Tin Roof with Rep. Gilda Cobb-Hunter, D-Orangeburg, and Brett Bursey, director of the Progressive Network.

 A separate group – which is also organizing buses for those who want to travel from South Carolina to Washington, D.C., for the national march – is also calling for a rally in Columbia.

The Women’s March on Washington-South Carolina said in a Facebook post that it was still working out the details with the national organizers about the local march route and start time.
