The Women’s March last year was a momentous event: millions of women and men took to the streets across the country in a show of solidarity. Marchers protested everything from the Trump administration’s proposals for a wall to its potential crackdown on women’s reproductive rights, and called for protections for immigrants and refugees. Estimates vary, but according to the Women’s March website, nearly 5 million people participated in marches worldwide. The Washington Post says it may have been the largest single-day demonstration in US history.

Local anniversary marches and events are being planned for Jan. 20-21 this year, while Women’s March national organizers are kicking off a voter registration tour with a rally on Jan. 21 in Las Vegas.

So now that it’s been almost a year, we want to know if the energy generated from last year’s march inspired you to do something beyond that one day. What did it change for you? Did you make a pledge and keep it? Tell us your story.

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

Our fall fundraising drive is off to a rough start, and we very much need to raise $250,000 in the next couple of weeks. If you value the journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us do it with a donation today.

As we wrote over the summer, traffic has been down at Mother Jones and a lot of sites with many people thinking news is less important now that Donald Trump is no longer president. But if you're reading this, you're not one of those people, and we're hoping we can rally support from folks like you who really get why our reporting matters right now. And that's how it's always worked: For 45 years now, a relatively small group of readers (compared to everyone we reach) who pitch in from time to time has allowed Mother Jones to do the type of journalism the moment demands and keep it free for everyone else.

Please pitch in with a donation during our fall fundraising drive if you can. We can't afford to come up short, and there's still a long way to go by November 5.
