Senior Fiona Harpole has always had an interest and passion for social justice, and has repeatedly wanted to make a change.

At the Women’s March last year, she realized how much she wanted to take part in making a difference. She was then approached by one of her friends who was participating in the setup of the next march.

The group of students who put on the march, People for Unity, did so without any help from adults, they put in months and months of hard work and meet many times after school to organize. Members of the group attend all different schools, including Boise High and Capitol. These young girls are paving the way for the future generations.

Harpole was honored to speak at the Women’s March, stating that “No matter your ethnicity, your gender, your religion, or ability, equality is not controversial.”

After all the hard work the members put in, they felt rewarded and happy as to how it turned out.“But standing on the capitol steps, in front of thousands of Idahoans who share our passion for equality, was the best pay off that we could have asked for.”
