Anniversary of Women’s March carries new message: Power to the Polls

Hundreds of demonstrations got underway Saturday, and will continue Sunday, to mark the first anniversary of the women’s marches organically formed in early 2017 in protest of President Donald Trump’s surprise presidential win.

But organizers and many participants are rallying under a new mandate this year: to influence electoral politics, with much of the messaging including voter participation and support for would-be candidates.

We’re not going anywhere.

In 2018, we’re bringing our #PowerToThePolls.
