The start of 2018 has been a whirlwind of good and bad vibes alike, but this weekend's coming Women's March is a hugely anticipated way to commemorate 365 days of resistance. The organizers of the first Women’s March in Washington, D.C., are planning to mark the anniversary of that march with an event called Power To The Polls. The main march this year will be held in Las Vegas on Jan. 21 (aka, this Sunday), along with local sister marches marches being held in various U.S. cities and countries throughout this coming weekend. Many of us, however, will not able to attend the march, whether due to work, weather (ahem, looking at you bomb cyclone), inaccessibility, or other reasons. If you are one of the people who can’t participate in person, you can still support the Women's March in ways large and small.
According to The Washington Post, somewhere between around 4 million people attended the Women’s March on Washington in 2017. Political scientists estimated 1 in 100 Americans marched across different cities in the United States. With sister marches also held across across the globe this year, millions of more people marched for women’s rights and other social justice issues, and in solidarity with American women. Though it’s uncertain of how many people will be attending this year's Women’s March in Las Vegas and in other cities, there is no doubt it will be just as powerful as the last. But if you're unable to make it, you can still easily celebrate a year of resistance. Here are seven ways to support the Women’s March if you can’t go in person.
