All you need to do is look at your Facebook feed to see that many women are scared about how women’s rights and health care will change when Donald Trump is officially sworn in as the 45th president on January 20. (It’s one reason the demand for IUDs is way up.)

But this is one case where fear has become a positive motivator. Women all over the country are planning an organized march on January 21—dubbed the “Million Women’s March”—to promote women’s rights and peacefully protest the policies Trump campaigned on (including abolishing the Affordable Care Act, which provides no-cost contraception, and appointing Supreme Court justices who will kill Roe v. Wade).

Rosie Campos, one of the five organizers, says via the official Facebook page of the Women’s March on Washington that “in the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.”

“The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message that women’s rights are human rights.”

The action will all go down in DC, and people across the country are already using the Facebook page as a central place to start conversations about transportation from their cities to DC. If the election has you feeling all sorts of anxiety and frustration, this is a way to unite with others who are 100 percent with you and raise your voice—which by the way is great for your health. (It’s science.)

Need some post-election stress relief right now? Listen to this sound bath for instant relaxation. Plus, here’s how to be angry without being hateful.
