While the main Women's March will take place in Washington D.C., more than 400 other demonstrations are being held nationwide.

On Saturday, January 21, 2017, supporters will gather together across the U.S. and the globe to show solidarity against the incoming Trump administration and its continued threats to a diverse nation. Visit the Women's March website for the full list of principles guiding this weekend's demonstrations. The march takes its name from the 1963 March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech.

In New York City, the Women's March will begin at 47th Street and First Ave at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza. The start is scheduled for 11am to coincide with the Washington D.C. march, but be aware that the event's FAQ indicates that "staggered start times" will be used due to the size of the event, and will be based on the marchers' last names, so groups may be gathered at Dag Hammarskjold for an extended time. The march will then head down Second Avenue, west on 42nd Street, then north on Fifth Avenue to end outside Trump Tower.

If you will be traveling to Washington D.C., you can even join up with fellow New Yorkers to march in the New York City contingent of the D.C. march, which will meet at 9:30am at Union Station on January 21.

Outside of New York, check the map below or the official list of sister marches to find a march near you! If you attend an event this Saturday, send in your photos or videos to @agreatbigcity on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook.
