Meet Us at the March. It’s Goin’ Down.

It’s goin’ down in eight days.

The day after inauguration, Saturday, Jan. 21, hundreds of thousands of people will converge on our nation’s capital to protest Trump’s racist agenda, and stand up for women’s rights and overall human rights. Beginning at 10 a.m. at the intersection of Independence Avenue and Third Street — right in the heart of the National Mall — this event will kick off with speakers and performers, ultimately culminating in the actual march. The march itself will most likely head down Independence toward the Washington Monument, a key landmark in various other historic marches, but the official route is still TBA.

Even though this event is still considered a grassroots movement, various celebrities of all ages and backgrounds are also on deck to come through — we’re talking Zendaya, Yara Shahidi, and Amandla Stenberg. And they’re just a few who’ve signed on to join the cause.

Truth is tons of teens will be holdin’ it down come march day. There’s even an entire set of principles dedicated just for the new generation of civil rights defenders like you. But before you roll through with your crew, make sure you’re prepped and ready for the long day: Check the weather forecast (D.C. in January is typically very cold) and dress to stay warm and dry (waterproof boots, layers, heavy coat, etc.). Also be sure to follow the rules on what not to bring.

Can’t make it in person, but still want to march in solidarity? Peep this list of sister marches happening in every single state, plus Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and 30+ other countries!
