Inspired by the Million Women March in Washington DC, hundreds of people rallied in Reading’s City Park on Saturday to join together and stand up against inequality.
To stand as One, in the name of Equality. Equal Respect. Equal Pay. Equal Power..
One of the speakers was Ramona Turner Turpin, a life long resident of Reading. She spoke about her experience growing up. “I don’t know anything but a life of service because that’s what I came from”. For Turpin, faith is large part of her life. Her struggle is understanding those closest to her that “don’t get it”. Service is important to Turpin, which she explains means supporting and uplifting those who may be different.
