SEATTLE (AP) — Thousands of people hit the streets in cities across the Pacific Northwest in solidarity with Saturday's Women's March on Washington D.C.

In Seattle, more than 130,000 took part in Saturday's march. Organizers said they wanted to connect people with one another and promote equity and social justice.

Events also took place in Portland, Boise, Spokane -- and Yakima, where about 700 showed up. No violence was reported at any of the events.

Many painted protest signs and knitted pink hats to show support not only for women, but also immigrants, Muslims, the LGBT community and others.

The marches brought together diverse groups and protesters, many with varying reasons for attending. Some were protesting President Donald Trump, while others said they wanted to make a stand against sexism, racism and hate.
