The Women’s March last year was a momentous event: millions of women and men took to the streets across the country in a show of solidarity. Marchers protested everything from the Trump administration’s proposals for a wall to its potential crackdown on women’s reproductive rights, and called for protections for immigrants and refugees. Estimates vary, but according to the Women’s March website, nearly 5 million people participated in marches worldwide. The Washington Post says it may have been the largest single-day demonstration in US history.

Local anniversary marches and events are being planned for Jan. 20-21 this year, while Women’s March national organizers are kicking off a voter registration tour with a rally on Jan. 21 in Las Vegas.

So now that it’s been almost a year, we want to know if the energy generated from last year’s march inspired you to do something beyond that one day. What did it change for you? Did you make a pledge and keep it? Tell us your story.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
