Bridge the Gap March for diversity


WHEELING, W.Va.---Men and women from the group known as M.O.V.E let their voice be heard Saturday afternoon.

Marchers Ohio Valley Empowered gathered today at Heritage Port and marched across the Suspension Bridge and over to Bridgeport demonstrating their rights for equal pay, a living wage, equality in healthcare and more.

Those who marched say they just want their voices to be heard.

Rhonda Hinton of M.O.V.E. says, " We need to step up, we need to be the resistance, we need to fight for what is right, what is good and what is democracy."

Chairwoman of M.O.V.E., Martha Polinsky says, "It's important now as much as any time. It's a shame that we have to do this after years and years, but we are not going anywhere."

The group plans on holding more demonstrations like this in the futures.
