DemDaily: Inaugural Week Logistics & Links
January 16, 2017
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Today we honor the great man; this week, in his spirit, we prepare to raise our voices.
"We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back." - Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr
An estimated 1 million people will descend on Washington this week for events and activism surrounding the January 18-21st Presidential Inaugural Ceremonies.
More than 200,000 of those people are expected to march on Saturday, while another 700,000 will be participating in 400 sister marches and protests in every state and six continents.
In the interim, some resources for those in the field - or on their way!
