Brenda Reeber, who coordinated both a Ludington’s group attendance in D.C. and  the afterglow reported that ½ million were drawn to D.C. with 4.8 marching worldwide. Marches occurred on all 7 continents, including antarctica. Some chants that were heard during the march were repeated during the afterglow, as march attendees recounted their experiences. Along with the personal stories, there was a call for attendees to get involved in the community to continue the momentum of the movement.

It allows them to save a lot of money, get a great education a really move through the system a lot quicker than if they went to a major university.” Said Representative Vanderwall. During his meeting with Governor Snyder, Vanderwall also stressed the value of skilled trades. “All up and down our district right now we’re hurting for folks to fill these great paying jobs. This is going to give people the opportunity for specialized training, working through those things at a local level so they can actually hold a job at the same time they are going to school.”
