Activists resisting the Trump administration have been organizing protests, mobilizing voters, and running for office. They have opposed restrictions on immigration, advocated for women’s rights, and spoken out against racial injustice. More than 250 Women’s March anniversary actions are planned for January 20. We’ll ask local organizers: Where has the movement succeeded, and what’s to come in 2018?

On Saturday, more than three million people gathered in cities around the country to oppose Donald Trump's sexist and racist agenda and to raise their voices about reproductive rights, economic justice, the environment, and many other crucial issues. It's said to be the largest march in US history. Marches also took place across the globe.
