On Saturday South Dakotans joined millions of people across the world for a one-day rally. The Women's March on Washington was established as a show of solidarity and a rallying cry that women's rights are human rights. Companion marches took place in all 50 states and across the globe.

In Rapid City, protesters filled the City Administration parking lot, marched through a few blocks of downtown, and then gathered in Memorial Park.

Launched in February, 2015, Rapid City Community Conversations is a volunteer organization devoted to encouraging cross-cultural dialog to address racial tensions and create communities of equality and peace.

Community organizer Chas Jewett joins Midday to discuss the challenges of "institutional racism" and how conversation might be more powerful than protesting in enacting lasting change.
