According to the Women’s March official website, this year's march, commemorating 365 days of resistance, will gather in Las Vegas, Nevada, for Women's March: Power to the Polls on Jan. 21. As with last year's Women's March, which was headquartered in Washington, D.C., the event will see thousands of sister marches taking place across the globe. If you choose to attend the main Women's March in Nevada, your local march, or other event in solidarity, there are a few things you should bring to the Women's March so you're prepared to protest.
“In Alabama, Black women delivered as they always do,” Linda Sarsour, co-chair of the Women’s March, said in a statement on the Women’s March website. “In addition to being willing to follow and support Black women, we all must commit to fighting the systemic voter suppression laws that inhibit so many of our communities from voting. This campaign will mobilize a new group of activists to create accessible power to our voting polls.”
The Women’s March 2017 was a historic protest of Trump's inauguration, where an estimated 4 million people came together in the U.S. in what is described as the largest single-day protest in American history. Nearly a year later, cities all over the country are preparing for Women’s March 2018. If you were at the Women’s March last year, you probably have a good idea of what to expect — large crowds, tons of walking, and a lot of excitement.
Women’s March 2017 was unprecedented, but now that we have a blueprint for Women’s March 2018, it’ll be much easier to prepare if you plan on attending. Whether you plan on going to the national Women’s March in Las Vegas or going to a local sister march in your area, there are some things you definitely want to bring.
