Last year, more than 4.2 million people in the U.S. participated in the largest single-day demonstration ever, and now it's happening again.

The second annual Women's March will take place next Sunday, Jan. 21, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Walt Disney Amphitheater at Lake Eola Park.

According to Women's March Florida, over 30,000 Floridians marched on Jan. 21, 2017, after the inauguration of President Trump, standing in solidarity with over 5 million people worldwide.

The goal now is to spread awareness of voter responsibility by focusing on "voter registration, ending voter suppression in Florida and supporting marginalized communities," says Women's March Florida.
