Activists in the Seattle area are organizing a second march, in the spirit of the Jan. 21, 2017, Seattle Womxn’s March (the “x” represents the intersection and overlapping of many forms of discrimination). The Seattle Women’s March 2.0 starts at 10 a.m. at Cal Anderson Park on Capitol Hill in Seattle, Saturday, Jan. 20 and Eastside participants have organized bus transportation for those interested in participating again.

The Snoqualmie Valley bus, leaving the Duvall Park and Ride at 9 a.m. Saturday, is booked up with 31 riders, but organizer Lisa Tario has created a waitlist. If enough people join the waitlist, she hopes to charter a larger bus. To sign up, visit http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409044eacab2aa0fa7-2018.

For those coming from Issaquah, buses will leave from the South Sammamish Park and Ride, located at 3015 228th Ave. SE, Sammamish, and the Issaquah Transit Center, located at 1464 Newport Way NW, Issaquah, at 8 a.m. To learn more or sign up, visit the Plateaupians for Peace Facebook page or send email to plateaupians@gmail.com.

The activism continues Sunday, Jan. 21, with Womxn ACT on Seattle, a citywide day of learning, supporting, sharing, and acting on behalf of nonprofit organizations, grassroots and social justice groups in Seattle .

Events include food and clothing drives, lectures and film screenings in the Seattle area, as well as on the Central Washington University campus in Sammamish, the Crossroads mall in Bellevue and the Muslim Association of Puget Sound in Redmond.
