A group of Kern County residents loaded into vans early Saturday morning to head to Los Angeles to take part in the Women's March.
Organizers said the Women's March is meant to unify and empower everyone who stands for women's rights, human rights, civil liberties and social justice for all.
The group left from Barnes & Noble around 5:30 Saturday morning and is returned around 8 that night.
Those who were unable to attend the larger march in Los Angeles organized a "Mini-March" at the corner of Stockdale Highway and California Avenue. Response to the local gathering was mostly positive according to supporters; however, one couple said they had eggs thrown at them and another supporter said they were spit at.
