Activists around the country are marching Saturday, one year since President Donald Trump’s inauguration and the Women’s March that began a global movement.
This year, Women’s March organizers are planning a rally at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday, an event that will kick off a voter registration tour. An estimated 250 marches are planned throughout the weekend for other cities around the U.S., according to the Wall Street Journal.
In New York City, an estimated thousands of marchers are gathering on the west side of Central Park, roughly one year since more than 3 million people joined the Women’s March in cities around the world. About 400,000 people marched in New York City in 2017, according to the mayor’s office.
The organization of this year’s sister marches appears to be largely decentralized. New York City’s 2018 march was organized by Women’s March Alliance, a nonprofit that developed from last year’s local march leadership.
