One of our own at the Women's March on Washington
January 21, 2017
On January 21,2017 BOCESTA member Laura Koeppel (Niagara Center) boarded a bus at 4:00 am in Williamsport, PA with her two cousins and her daughter, Amanda and they were off to Washington, DC. "This [the Women's March on Washington] was probably one of the most amazing experiences I've ever participated in! It didn't take us very long after arriving in Washington to realize that we were going to be a part of history," said Koeppel.
