In a show of solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington, several women’s marches will be held throughout the U.S. on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017 – the day after President-elect Trump is set to take office.

The events, being organized largely on Facebook, have received more than 100,000 replies from people willing to participate. Thousands of women are expected at the Washington March following the inauguration.

 

Equality Florida describes the March as:

a non-partisan call to action, through unity in diversity, on behalf of all women. Supporters and defenders of all ages, races, genders, orientations, socio-economic groups and religious beliefs are invited to join. In the spirit of democracy, and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, this is a chance for us all to have a voice in our individual and collective futures.

Planned Parenthood and Progress Florida Education Institute are leading efforts for the Tallahassee Women's March. To receive updated information about the Tallahassee Women's March text the keyword TALLYMARCH to 864237.
