Huge turnout is expected at protests on Inauguration Day and at the Women’s Marches happening around the country on the 21st, which can easily overwhelm local mobile phone networks.  If you’ll be participating in one of these events, download FireChat to stay connected with your friends in the area.  The program uses Bluetooth and peer-to-peer wifi to create a local network without relying on data or an internet connection.  It’s available for Android and Apple phones.
