According to organizers, the march will follow the theme “Women Rising.” In that spirit, a Native/Indigenous Contingent will lead the march alongside a “Women of Color Contingent” made up of local activists, and dance troupe Hundreds Unit.
This is a free event, but participants are asked to register online ahead of time so organizers can get an accurate count.
You can learn more about the march on their website.
