Donald Trump’s rise to the presidency has become one of the most polarizing events in modern American history.  While some will celebrate his inauguration Friday, others will protest the social climate for which they believe Trump is largely responsible. 

 

As thousands march in Washington on Saturday, Lansing will see a similar demonstration at the State Capitol.  WKAR's Kevin Lavery reports on the "March on Lansing."

 

Tashmica Torok of Lansing is will join thousands in the Women's March on Washington on Saturday. She's the executive director of The Firecracker Foundation, an organization dedicated to working with child survivors of sexual trauma and their families. Her motivation is to go on the record as someone who did not vote for Donald Trump and who doesn't think the President-Elect acts "in the best interests of the people of the United States."
