LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Men and women from all backgrounds gathered at the Tippecanoe County Courthouse Saturday to celebrate inclusion. It was the second year the "We March Onward" event came downtown.
The event was centered around bringing the community together to start a conversation. Event goers heard stories and enjoyed music aimed at equality. River Karner and Kathy Parker each helped organize the event. They said events like these help generate positive ideas for the future.
"If you want to make a change, lasting change, make sure you stand up, vote, run for office," said Karner.
"We welcome everybody here and we just want to keep people engaged in the issues of our day," said Parker.
River Karner expressed an appreciation for members of the community who have been involved over the last two years.
"For the most part, I think it's been very positive. I think people are generous and kind," Karner said.
The event celebrated inclusion and progressiveness in the community.
"I think that's just it. It's a time for us to get together and say we are all part of this human family," said Parker.
