Celebrities Support The Resistance at the 2018 Women’s March

"Look back, march forward."

By Jasmine Washington

Thousands of protesters took to the streets in honor of the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March. Created in response to Donald Trump’s presidential election and held on the day of Trump’s inauguration, the Women’s March spawned protests in hundreds of cities around the world.

This year, the Women’s March featured weekend long festivities to launch the new Power to the Polls initiative. Power to the Polls strives to help register new voters in swing states, elect more women and progressive candidates and advocate for policies and candidates that reflect the Women’s March core values.

Celebrities like Snoop Dogg, Ellen Degeneres and Alyssa Milano took to social media in honor of the the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival) Act, another prevalent political issue being supported by this year’s Women’s March.

On the ground, stars like Viola Davis, Elizabeth Banks, Olivia Wilde Jane Fonda and Eva Longoria took to the streets to join Women’s March protests in cities like New York, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Utah and Philadelphia.
