A bipartisan Women’s March is taking place in Washington, D.C. on Saturday January 21st and sister marches are taking place around the world. This is a peaceful rally to show that we will not accept intolerance or injustice. There are over 600 communities globally marching at the same time.

That includes Rome. It is taking place on Piazza della Rotonda in front of the Pantheon from 11 AM – 2 PM. This is a historic moment that is not to be missed. Bring a sign and bring your family, friends, and neighbors. Find more information on their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/339322506434838/

There is also a march in Florence: https://actionnetwork.org/events/florence-women…
