Shortly after Donald Trump’s inauguration in 2017, the largest one-day protest in history took the world by storm. We’re referring to the Women’s March, an event which inspired millions of people of all ages to parade, chant and carry signs supporting basic human rights—not only for women but for every individual, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender and sexual orientation.

Another protest is set to take place in New York City this weekend. And, yes, there are still plenty of reasons to keep up the good fight. (We’ll leave it to your Twitter feed to remind you of all the gory details.) There is one fact, however, we want to take time to highlight. As Gothamist pointed out, there are actually three Women’s March-related events scheduled for Saturday, January 19.

As in previous years, The Women’s March Alliance orchestrated by Katherine Siemionko is hosting a procession that begins at 72nd Street and Columbus and 72nd Street and Central Park. There’s an entry point at 61st Street and Broadway for rally-goers with disabilities and those who use American Sign Language. (We've included a map below for your reference.) 

In Foley Square (from 10am to 2pm), Women’s March NYC and the New York Immigration Coalition are hosting The Women’s Unity Rally. At the end of that there is a Non-March for Disabled Women hosted by Rise and Resist with help from Women’s March NYC at Grand Central Station from 2pm to 4pm.

Regardless of which event you attend (or perhaps you’ll join all three?), keep this weekend’s weather forecast in mind and make sure to bundle up. A little (or maybe a lot?) of snow isn’t going to keep anyone away from fighting the patriarchy, dammit!
