Organizers expect 3,000 to 5,000 demonstrators at the Women’s March on Charlotte scheduled for Saturday morning, which will wind through much of uptown.
The march is scheduled to coincide with a national demonstration Saturday in Washington, D.C., the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration as president.
The mile-long route for the march, scheduled for 10 a.m.-12 p.m., starts at First Ward Park, goes down Tryon Street to Martin Luther King Drive and ends at Romare Bearden Park. Marchers are encouraged to arrive by 9:45 a.m.
“The route will allow access for wheelchairs, walkers and strollers,” organizers said in a message Wednesday. Children and well-behaved, leashed pets are welcome.
