Mayor Marian Orr, mayor of Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA, was among members in the community who are taking a stance against gender violence. Orr signed a proclamation at the Wyoming Supreme Court Building, helping kick off the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence campaign.

Shortly after, Orr joined members of the public as well as the Zonta Club of Cheyenne and Cheyenne Triumph High School’s Z Club in a silent march to the Laramie County Library.

Triumph High School Z Club president Hannah Lipps said it was a great experience being joined by others in the community taking a stance. She said, “It felt really good because, you know, you’re not alone.” She added, “I think it’s a good thing to do, it’s a good thing to stand up for other people who can’t do it themselves or they feel too scared to do it themselves.”
