In 2017, millions of women and allies worldwide raised their voices and flooded their streets in support of the largest single-day protest in our nation's history — the Women's March. The following year, a record number of women were elected into office and thousands more gathered to vote in various cities across the U.S. in response to the Power to the Polls campaign.

This year, the organization hopes to spark up the fire once again with the rallying call "The #WomensWave is coming, and we're sweeping the world forward with us."

San Antonians can join in the fight on Saturday, January 19 to remind the world of that day, of the peace and equality still strived for not only for ourselves but for our sisters and LGBTQ resistors everywhere.

Free, Sat Jan. 19, 11am-2pm, San Fernando Cathedral, 115 Main Plaza, brightest.io
