3,000 people gathered in Downtown Fargo to raise their voice in opposition to President Donald Trump.

Women, men and even children stood together in solidarity holding signs and marching through town.

The event started off with speech program and the group then marched down Broadway to NP Avenue.

From Washington D.C. to Los Angeles, protests were held across the nation in support of women's rights.

“We don't want to go backwards. This is a country about progress and moving forward. There is a concern that women are going to be devalued through the various programs that are available to them and it just can't happen,” Maureen Woodbury said.

More than two million women and men from around the world took part in the women's march, including seven continents and more than 600 individual sister marches.
