The day after Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th U.S. President, people around the world will participate in the “Women’s March.” It began as a rally in Washington D.C. The goal is to elevate the visibility of women and marginalized communities. There are now marches planned in more than 50 countries, and there’s at least one march in every state. In Oregon people have pledged to rally and march in cities like Florence, Newport, Bend, and Eugene.

Colleagues of former Eugene City Councilor Andrea Ortiz are remembering her for her compassion and leadership. Ortiz died Monday at age 59.
