Women and men across Atlanta took part in the nationally coordinated Women’s March 2018 on Saturday, Jan. 20. Georgia Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and actress Alyssa Milano were among a dais of speakers who galvanized the protesters with powerful and inspirational speeches.
Saturday afternoon, about 5,000 women and protesters gathered at 825 Warner Street, about one mile south of the West End MARTA Station, to protest the policies of President Donald J. Trump and the Republican Party while galvanizing people to join The Resistance.
Following the march, a gathering themed “Power to the Polls” was hosted at The Bakery in southwest Atlanta by the Georgia Alliance for social justice. “Last year we marched for equity and social justice,” materials for the gathering read. “This year, we mobilize to use our strength to create a lasting impact.”
