Big crowd floods downtown Geneva for women's march; Lauren Underwood among those to applaud change

Author: Editor
Blowing snow and temperatures in the mid-20s Saturday morning did not deter a legion of women from taking to the streets of downtown Geneva in a show of solidarity.
 
"We're tough and we are going to march through," said Leah Beck, co-organizer of the Fox Valley Women’s March. "We are going to stand up for our rights and not let the weather slow us down.”
 
Orchestrated by We Can Lead Change Fox Valley and Kane County Coalition, the march was one of hundreds being held around the country to send a message of self-determination and unity.

Imam Haroon Ahmed of the Muslim Association of Bolingbrook presided over the invocation at the beginning of the board’s monthly meeting after the call to order and the Pledge of Allegiance.

Board member Michelle “Mimi” Cowan, D-Naperville, introduced Ahmed and said they believe this was the first time a Muslim faith leader gave the invocation at a Will County Board meeting.
