Just one week ahead of the Women’s March and Unity Rally in Montpelier, Vermonters gathers in Burlington to create banners, signs and artwork. For some, the rally represents a show of resistance toward the incoming administration of Republican President-elect Donald Trump.

“We’re not just going to sit by idly and let all the progress we’ve made for women, health care, race relations, economic equity, you name it,” Wendy Hess, who is going to the march in the District of Columbia, said. “We aren’t going back 10 or 15 years, we are going forward.”

For others, seeing how many people are going together to rally gives hope for a brighter future.

“We really see this as a time to set a road for people coming together, organizations, for the next 4 years,” organizer Bonnie Acker said. “It’s about justice, equality, inclusion, and a safety net for all. Everyone has a voice. How do we get those voices together?”

The Vermont Women’s March and Unity Rally is next Saturday in Montpelier. Organizers describe it as a march for parity, equality and justice for all women, and a rally for social, economic and environmental justice for all.

It didn’t take long for organizers to begin planning protests against Donald Trump after his election. One of the largest movements has been sparked by an online campaign and calling for crafty creations to make a statement.

There’s a project calling for custom-made hats to be worn the weekend of Trump’s inauguration. Organizers are using a typically unpopular color to get attention.

Yarn stores around the state may be filled with lots of colors, but one has been selling a lot more than others. Watch WCAX’s news coverage to learn “Why pink yarn is flying off the shelves in Vermont”.
