EAU CLAIRE Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Protestors gathered today in downtown Eau Claire to share their frustrations over the potential overturn of Roe versus Wade. The afternoon’s event was a walking protest.

Marchers met in Haymarket Plaza before marching downtown. Organizers say part of the protest’s goal is to bring visibility to their cause. 

“We’re just kind of hoping our voices can get out to everyone, that we can see that the women here do not want this. I know that we can petition for a federal law to pass or a federal bill to have abortions stay legal in Wisconsin, so we’re going to hope for that as well and hope we can get the community behind that too,” said Barthen. Barthen says she was happy with the community’s turnout at the walking protest.
