YWCA working to maintain momentum from success of the Women's March

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON (KVOA) -- The YWCA of Southern Arizona is working to keep the momentum strong after the Women's March in Tucson last month drew 15,000 people.

The YWCA helped organize the local Women's March. 

Liane Hernandez, with the YWCA, said she was inspired by the thousands of people, of all walks of life, who turned out for the march.

"We find ourselves in this lightning bolt moment right now where folks see that there is a possibility and a reason to turn out and be in community with each other," said Hernandez. "Try to make some change in their lives, and in the world?."

Hernandez said the YWCA is working with local organizations to host more meetings in order to better unify the community. She said the key to keeping the momentum alive, is to create solidarity within the community. 

"This is a time to really listen and to hear from each other and get connected with one another. So there's lots of things that are happening in community," she said. "At the YWCA we are doing our part by being a good collaborator."

Hernandez said their facility is often used to host events.
