CLEVELAND — Hundreds of people gathered in downtown Cleveland Saturday despite snow and blistering wind for Women's March 2019. The event is part of a wave of marches happening across the country.

Participants gathered around 10:30 a.m. at Public Square for a rally before marching at noon.

Following the march, a special program was scheduled to take place at the Old Stone Church on Public Square.

Among the speakers will be Susan Bro, whose daughter was killed by a white nationalist from Ohio in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Samaria Rice, who became an activist after her 12-year-old son Tamir Rice was killed by a Cleveland police officer.
