Where was coverage of the Women’s March?
We were disappointed that The Alpena News chose not to cover the historic Women’s March that happened not only in Washington, DC but in Michigan cities and around the U.S. and the world. Such a significant news story should have been front page news. Over two million people marched world-wide for gender equality, racial equality, LGBRTQI equality, economic justice and reproductive freedom, for equal pay, paid family leave, labor protections, clean water and air and access to public lands, and for an end to violence against women, police brutality and racial profiling. These are issues that should be on the minds of every American and every citizen of Alpena and the march was a means to bring all these issues to the forefront.
