Women's Marches Across the Country to Participate in If You Can't Make It to D.C.

On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of protesters will take to the streets of Washington D.C. for the Women’s March on Washington. It’s set to be a monumental event  — potentially one of the largest protests in the U.S. in decades. If you want to be a part of it, but aren’t able to make it to D.C. for the actual march, there are plenty of women’s marches across the country you can participate in.

If you want to help, but can’t make it to any march for whatever reason, you can always donate to the Women’s March on Washington on its website, call your representatives and ask that they stand up for women, or get involved by promoting what the march represents on social media. Advocating for women’s rights and showing President Trump that we will fight for autonomy over our own bodies doesn’t have to only happen through a physical protest, and the day can be used to show your resistance to harmful policies and agendas in any way you see fit.

But, if you want to do those things and march, the official Women’s March on Washington has sister marches in almost every state. Here are some of the other major cities with their own.

Atlanta: Center for Civil and Human Rights

Austin: Texas State Capitol

Boston: Boston Common

Charlotte: First Ward Park

Chicago: Jackson Boulevard and Lake Shore Drive

Denver: Civic Center Park

Des Moines: Iowa State Capitol

Indianapolis: Indiana State House

Little Rock: Arkansas State Capitol

Los Angeles: Pershing Square to City Hall

Miami: Bayfront Park Amphitheater

Philadelphia: Benjamin Franklin Parkway

Providence: Rhode Island State House

Salt Lake City: Utah State Capitol
