SIOUX FALLS (AP) - The mayor of Sioux Falls is recognizing demonstrators at the city's second annual Women's March for their marching efforts.

Mayor Mike Huether presented marchers with a key to the city Saturday. The Argus Leader reports the march - one of many across the country - drew thousands to downtown Sioux Falls. Last year's march also drew a big crowd.

Speakers urged marchers to vote in upcoming elections and support candidates.

Twenty-one-year-old Mark McLaughlin traveled from Brookings to join the march. The student at South Dakota State University says he "came to stand against hate."

Tammie Harris helped her daughters- ages 5 and 6 - draw a sign saying, "Love Trumps Hate." Harris says she wants her daughters to grow up "knowing they are powerful and that they have a voice."
