From 2017: What's Next For Colorado's 'Women's March'?

Jessica Rogers and Lisa Cutter, half of the organizing team for the march, tell Colorado Matters they hope to inspire sustained action in state politics, mobilizing people to knock on doors, register voters and testify at the Capitol during legislative hearings. It's part of their overall goal to give women and marginalized citizens a louder voice in politics. They will start with nine meet-ups scheduled around the state for the day after the march.
