People unite in Seneca Falls for the Women's March

Thousands of people united together in Seneca Falls for the Women's March Saturday.

SENECA FALLS, NY (WHAM) - Thousands of people united together in Seneca Falls for the Women's March Saturday.

"We are all 'per-sisters' and we are here calling all women,” said Arlette Miller Smith as she read a poem.

Mothers and daughters, along with fathers and sons were celebrating women and each other.

"It’s a life changing experience,” said Jahangir Qazi, from Rochester.

He is sharing this experience with his mom.

"We just have to treat each other with respect and admiration because women are awesome but so are men,” Lisa Toth, his mom, said.

They joined thousands of others rallying and marching together for this year’s Women’s March.

This year’s theme is "per-sisters." It's aim is to celebrate women who don’t give up and go for what they want.

That's something Julie Legnetto is teaching her 10-year-old daughter Sydney to do.

"If little kids can dream of big things when they grow up they can become them,” said young Sydney.

"Tears come to my eyes it’s just beautiful to see everybody come together,” said Julie Legnetto.

After helping to start this movement last year, organizers said they wanted to come together for a second time.

"It is so thrilling because working on an event like this is heart work not hard work and people from all over the state come, ” said Melina Carnicelli, an organizer.

With about 10,000 people in the crowd we found one little girl who one day could be president. "It’s really cool because everyone’s nice and high fiving,” said Anka Chiorini.
