MADISON, Wis. - Hundreds of people gathered at the steps of the City-County Building in Madison Saturday afternoon to show support for communities of color and marginalized people in the city and elsewhere.
The gathering was part of the "Madison Resistance March," which saw demonstrators march from Brittingham Park around the Capitol Square to the City-County Building.
Several people spoke at the meeting, including school board candidate Ali Muldrow, who told the crowd they could make a difference.
"Believe in your power to make things change, to make things beautiful, to make things fair," she said.
Other speakers urged the crowd to get involved in other marches and events, as well as joining the cause for issues like workers' rights.
