Women's March participants hold 'Huddles' in Asheville, across the country
Participants from the Women's March on Washington held "Huddles" across the country today, as a call to action following the many local marches last month, including one here in Asheville.
Nearly 50 people attended the meeting at Biltmore Coffee Roasters Saturday morning.
The Women's March website defines "Huddles" as community gathering meant to define goals and future actions.
"We don't want our march and the activism and the huge drawing that we were able to mobilize for that just to kind of fizzle out," said Laura Telford, a participant. "We want now to really use that momentum."
These Huddles are the second of 10 actions planned for the first 100 days of the new administration.
