    I know of 5 women’s marches around NC in 2020. The first was in Albemarle on Jan 11. There were two on Jan 18 – one in Black Mountain and one in Wilmington. The Black Mountain Women’s March was again organized by middle school girls and their moms. Charlotte is doing theirs on Saturday, Jan 25, and the Raleigh Women’s March is Sunday, Jan 26. All have different themes but you can bet all are lifting up women’s issues and women! More at https://wp.me/p22b2e-2rJ.
