Thousands gather at Concord State House in support of women's rights
CONCORD — Thousands of people gathered at the State House in the capital city of the Granite State in a demonstration on Saturday following the inauguration of President Trump on Friday.
The event was part of New Hampshire's Day of Action planned to move for progress regarding human rights, workers rights, LGBTQ rights, and economic, environmental and racial and reproductive justice, according to those gathered.
"We have hundreds of thousands of women and men who are gathered for the historic march in Washington," said U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen.
U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan said "Keep at it. Make sure you are speaking up every day and in every place you need to be. That includes at this wonderful State House of ours."
More than a dozen organizations came together to support the cause.
