About 10,000 people gathered for the third annual Seattle Womxn’s March, which took place Saturday.

The march started at Cal Anderson Park on Capitol Hill and made its way to Seattle Center. Seattle Womxn Marching Forward, which organized Saturday’s march, also prepared a weekend full of workshops and action throughout the region with the theme of “Building Power.”

Marchers and speakers supported a number of issues that affect women, people of color and other marginalized groups. It was the third such march following the election of President Donald Trump. The first took place in 2017.
