Make plans to attend the 2018 Women’s March event nearest you. Most will take place on Sunday, January 21.

If you’re reading this, you probably went to the first Women’s March on January 21, 2017. You were not alone. An estimated 3.2 million to 5.2 million participated in America, making the Women’s March the largest single-day protest ever, period, full stop. Protests were held on every continent–Antarctica included.

Naturally, there’s an appetite to do it again come 2018. Below are some resources for finding the event nearest you. Note that most, but not all, will take place on the actual one-year anniversary. Some are on the preceding Friday or Saturday.

The folks behind the Women’s March proper are planning a January 21, 2018 event in Las Vegas to mark the march’s anniversary and showcase its 2018 agenda: #PowerToThePolls, an effort to convert enthusiasm into actual votes in November.
