State Street (at the Capitol Square)


The MPD helped an estimated 700 marchers get safely to the State Capitol this morning for "A Day Without Women" event. The peaceful group joined with others across the country to mark and rally around International Women's Day.

 Marchers converged on the Capitol Square from two directions: some marched up East Washington Avenue, others up State Street from Library Mall.
There were no issues and no arrests.

The MPD thanks marchers for exercising First Amendment rights without incident, and motorists for patience while downtown traffic flow was impacted for short periods of time.
