The marches are led by women, but anybody is encouraged to attend. “We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, out health and our families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country,” a statement from the National Organization explained. The goal is to “move forward in the fact of national and international concern and fear” after the recent election cycle, which “insulted, demonized and threatened” minorities.
This historic event will go down on Jan. 21, just one day after Donald Trump, 70, is officially inaugurated into office. The main event will take place in his new home, Washington D.C., with dozens of celebrities, like Katy Perry, Amy Schumer, Chelsea Handler and more, already confirmed to attend.
“We’re excited that women across the nation and the world are organizing to stand together in solidarity,” Women’s March on Washington co-chair, Bob Bland, said. “Our unity will send a strong and clear message that women and our allies will protect our rights, our health, our safety and our communities. These sister marches show a powerful and inclusive movement, which is just as crucial as the thousands who will travel to D.C.”
