TULSA, Okla. - When two community activists found out this year’s Women's March may not be happening in Tulsa, they immediately came together to make it happen.
The march, intended to empower and unite women, has been held nationally for the past two years. Last year’s march in Tulsa drew thousands of women and supporters.
Former organizers said family health issues caused them to step down from their roles in the event.
The third annual Women’s March is scheduled for Jan. 19, from 11-1 p.m. The march will start at Guthrie Green and end at John Hope Franklin Park.
This year, co-facilitators LeeAnn Crosby and Crystal Ifekoya, are asking for volunteers to be female ambassadors. Ambassadors will be responsible for bringing a group of women to the march with them, and will meet quarterly as a committee to address issues in the community.
Anyone interested in becoming an ambassador can find information on the event’s Facebook page.
