University of Wyoming students and members of the Laramie community will hold a rally and candlelight vigil this weekend to stand in solidarity and remember the woman, Heather Heyer, who was killed in Charlottesville, VA during protests there.
"Today we are trying to get across for people to go to our local school boards to tell them, 'look, we are here, we here in support of the transgender community, we need to be able to let out transgender students use the bathroom that represents their gender identity," Vali said.
Tuesday's Global Climate March began with a rally in the Alice Hardy Stevens Center at 5 p.m. The event was held to spread awareness of climate change and what people in the Laramie community can do to make a difference.
Roughly 100 activists gathered to hear several guest speakers including University of Wyoming Anthropology Professor Sarah Strauss and Department of Geography Chair WIlliam Gribb
