America faces a crisis. Donald Trump’s campaign promises threaten millions. We must rally, protest, organize, and support one another.

On Inauguration Day, we will gather to protest Donald Trump’s politics of fear and hate. This is a call to action to rally for justice and dignity for all. We’re rallying for civil rights, immigrants’ rights, reproductive rights, our environment, and good jobs, as well as justice and safety in all of our communities.

The march begins at 5 p.m., Friday, January 20, 2017, at Auditorium Shores, 900 W. Riverside Ave., Austin, and we’ll march up Congress Avenue to the Capitol to hold the rally.

(On Saturday, January 21, there will be a companion rally to the Women’s March on Washington from noon to 3 p.m. at the State Capitol. See the Women’s March on Austin for details.)
