WHEN PEOPLE IN YAKIMA DISAGREE THEY RALLY
Rallies and protests aren't unfamiliar to Yakima. One of the state's first Tea Party rallies was held in Yakima in front of the Capital Theater. Other rallies and protests have been held to give a voice to people on everything from COVID-19 to rallies supporting Donald Trump. Rallies have been held in Yakima County over the last year that have centered on the emergency powers of the governor and COVID-19 restrictions. Now with new restrictions being considered on both the state and local levels people in Yakima want to speak out. Many parents in Yakima are concerned about kids and masking policies when school starts later this month and next. Parents who are against mandated masking policies in school or mandated vaccines are encouraged to attend the rally on Saturday in Yakima.
