Event organizers made a goal to bring in 100 sister marchers at the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, Mass. The event website got 450 RSVPs and expectations rose to 600 and, nearing the end, the clicker count had stretched to at least 1,500.
In Berkshire County, we have a free indoor sister event in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington at the Colonial Theatre on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event was organized by a local steering committee that includes Kristen van Ginhoven of Lenox-based WAM Theatre, which focuses on work by female theater artists and stories for women and girls, and volunteers Jayne Benjulian, Lynn Festa and Mary Lincoln.
Thanks to a collaboration with the Women’s March on Washington-national team and the Women’s March on Washington-Massachusetts Chapter, rally coverage from Washington will be live-streamed throughout the event at the Colonial.
