WILLIAMSPORT, LYCOMING COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) – Many Pennsylvanians are preparing to head to the nation’s capitol this weekend as Donald Trump becomes President.
Some are driving down after the inauguration.
Hundreds of people from central Pennsylvania are preparing to bus down to the capitol to participate in the Women’s March on Washington.
Eyewitness news reporter Valerie Tysanner spoke with some of the people spearheading the effort. The last few days have been frantic – with last minute preparations.
Organizers believe social media played a big role in the response they’ve received locally with both men and women hoping for an open bus seat.
All this – they say – to send one message.
There will be 17 buses heading to Washington D.C. for the women’s march from the north central Pennsylvania area alone.
Pennsylvania activists expect between ten and twelve thousand people from the commonwealth will attend Saturday’s rally.
