If you missed the first wave of airport protests against the refugee ban last weekend, not to fear — there are still additional protests going on around the country. GroundGame has a useful list of locations and dates, including several scheduled for this upcoming weekend.
According to Vox, more than 3.3 million people were estimated to have marched in over 500 cities nationwide. Now we need to keep this momentum up until the 2018 mid-terms!
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.

The Women’s March on Washington is planned as a protest of Trump’s inauguration, and will be held on January 21 near the US Capitol. If you can’t make it to DC, other Women’s Marches are being planned around the country. Look up “women’s march [your state]” to find another near you. Men and non-binary folks are also welcome, of course!
