Women March in Batavia
Written by Dan Fischer on January 19, 2019
About 125 people braved single digit wind chills to locally mark the 2019 Women’s March for equality.
The rally started in Jackson Square and moved to the City Centre. The march route had been shortened due to the weather.
Participants included Diana Kastenbaum, a Congressional candidate in 2016 and owner of Pinacle Manufacting in Batavia; members of Woke GCC; and Debora McDell-Hernandez with Planned Parenthood of Batavia.
Erica O’Donnell, founding member of the Batavia chapter of Women’s March Global said over 200 went to Seneca Falls from the Batavia area.O’Donnell said some of the same women planning this march also helped to plan a trip to Seneca Falls last spring for the March for Our Lives.
