On January 21, the day after Donald Trump is inaugurated as the 45th president, the Women's March on Washington will take place "for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families - recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country." On Monday, the organizers of the march announced that a number of celebrities — including Katy Perry, Cher, America Ferrera, Hari Nef, and more — will participating and joining in solidarity with the march.
“Since the election, so many fear that their voices will go unheard,” said actress America Ferrera, who will be the chair of the march's Artist Table. “As artists, women, and most importantly dedicated Americans, it is critical that we stand together in solidarity for the protection, dignity and rights of our communities. Immigrant rights, worker rights, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, racial justice and environmental rights are not special interests, they affect us all and should be every American's concern."
In addition to the March on Washington, over 150 independently organized solidarity marches will place around the country on January 21. Other marches are also planned in 20 different countries around the world. Visit the Women's March website for more information.
