LIVE: Women gather from around country for second march on Washington
Thousands of women from around the country arrived Saturday for the second Women’s March on Washington.
Note: This is a live feed of the march. There may be period disruptions as well as profane or graphic language used.
The event first started last year after President Donald Trump was elected and was the largest women’s march in United States history.
Marchers meet at the Reflecting Pool, on the National Mall, at 11 a.m. for a rally and then start marching to the White House.
"This year's elections are crucialthey will either signal a turnaround in Donald Trump's ability to perpetuate his racist, sexist and intolerant agenda, or another two years of more of the same," National Organization for Women President Toni Van Pelt said in a press release to ABC7. "We know that women can determine the outcome in close elections. We need to build excitement and enthusiasm right now for a massive get out the vote campaign in November."
Some of this year's guests include Senator Tim Kaine, professional soccer player Joanna Lohman and Founding Director of Not Without Black Women Brittany T. Oliver.
The National Museum of Women in the Arts will be free Saturday in honor of the march and will be offering hot beverages.
