Excellent morning on this sunny Friday.
The Women’s March returns this weekend.
The event will take spot on Saturday in Washington, New York and hundreds of other locations.
In the city, participants assemble at 11 a.m. at 71st Street and Columbus Avenue. The rally starts at 11:30 a.m., and the march steps off at 1 p.m., filing down Central Park West, wrapping about Columbus Circle and then proceeding down Sixth Avenue toward Bryant Park.
Last year’s rally in Washington drew a crowd three times the size of the audience at President Trump’s inauguration, according to crowd counting authorities, and in New York, hundreds of thousands of demonstrators converged on Fifth Avenue.
As of this morning, more than 85,000 individuals had registered to march. (Registering on the internet is not essential, but the numbers are used by officials for preparing purposes.)
We checked in with regional organizers to recognize the concentrate of this year’s march.
“Last year was about ladies standing together and realizing that they’re not alone,” mentioned Katherine Siemionko, founder of the Women’s March Alliance, the nonprofit that organized the New York City rally.
“The message this year is marching to action: March, register, vote. You’re marching, making positive you’re registered to vote, and getting to the polls.”
We asked for participants in New York and beyond to tell us what they were marching for.
Sarah Steinhardt, an organizer from the Women’s March Alliance, mentioned she was marching in New York Citybecause there has not been sufficient modify in the previous year. When asked how she defines “change,” she told us: “Seeing our elected officials advocating for laws that shield girls and empower women.”
Stephanie Bazirjian, 62, a New York City resident, is marching right here “for the DACA individuals, for minorities, for difficult-functioning immigrants, for females.”
Ayesha Hamilton, 45, a New Jersey resident who plans to March in Morristown, said, “I march simply because the women’s movement needs momentum and power, due to the fact our daughters and their daughters need to not have to worry about equal spend or assault in the workplace.”
Here’s what else is taking place:
