Source: Why Women's March Organizers Are Focused On Polls In Nevada This Year

FADEL: Organizers say they're using the anniversary to harness the momentum of the past year into voter power. They call themselves the resistance, the resistance to this administration, and so many conservative women say they don't feel welcome at these marches and rallies. One of the big criticisms was the march in D.C. was mostly white, liberal women. This year, organizers say they are reaching out to local partners after a year of grassroots work to try to access a cross section of America, from minorities to the disenfranchised to women in low-income communities.
Hi everyone! What does the bold part mean? Thanks in advance.

    … try to reach out to a wider sample (cross-section) of women – not just “mostly white, liberal women”
