Organizers planning two different Seattle marches on January 20th, 2018 to mark the anniversary of the 2017 nationwide protests against the inauguration of Donald Trump will work together on an event starting in Cal Anderson Park.
CHS wrote about the separate efforts earlier this month. Over the holiday break, organizers announced they will collaborate on a single anniversary march on Saturday starting in the Capitol Hill Park.
“2018 is a pivotal year for midterm elections. We have the opportunity to support and elect record numbers of womxn and POC to our state and national governments,” organizers write. “We must all get engaged and stay engaged.”
The Saturday march will be followed by a Sunday of “trainings, lectures, and panels” in neighborhood hubs across Seattle. Organizers are looking for hosts in more areas of the city.
In January of 2017 to protest the inauguration Trump, thousands marched in cities across the nation. In Seattle, the march stretched from the Central District to the Seattle Center, with an unofficial 120,000 filling the route.
