ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — Come rain, sleet or snow, local organizers of tomorrow's Women's March are vowing that it will go on as scheduled.

The third St. Louis Women's March will take place at 10:30 a.m. Saturday across from Union Station.

Nothing can stop us. St. Louis, are we ready?! #stlwomensmarch 1.19.19

"One of our members who actually hosts a pop-up shelter pointed out to us that members of our unhoused community deal with this every day," organizer Heather Fleming said on Total Information A.M. Friday morning. "So we can come out for a few hours to support St. Louis."

The theme this year is: "In 17 We Marched, In 18 We Voted, In 19 We Act." 

"Honestly, just marching one day a year isn't going to make any change in our community," organizer Maggie Huffman stated. "We need to be active in our community throughout the year."

There's a couple of issues that are driving Fleming to march.

"One of our members has a non-profit where she is building a home for women with sex trafficking," Fleming pointed out. "In my community, I deal with creating equity and diversity and acceptance within the community."

Also at the march will be an Action Fair where marchers can connect with non-profits and community organizations.
