The day after Trump’s inauguration, women and men around the world will participate in Women’s March. On January 21, citizens will stand up for equality and civil rights for justice under President’s Trump’s controversial policies.
Since many of us are on the road, we may not be able to attend the marches being held in various major cities, here are some ways you can use your social media skills to show support:
1. #LovesTrumpsHate rightfully makes a comeback.
Use this hashtag which became wildly trendy during the election. This weekend is about showing love and respect. Love DOES trump hate. Other useful hashtags that will certainly takeover the trending list this weekend includes:
2. Watch the march via livestream.
Not everyone can make it to a march because not everyone is in a city where a march is being held. But with today’s technology, we can still follow LIVE! Major news channels will be broadcasting live, in addition to livestreaming their coverage on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
3. Update your social media profile pics.
On the day of the inauguration, many already changed their profile photos to their favorite moments while The Obamas were in the White House. To support the march, you can change your profile photo to one of the posters marchers will be using. Check out these five winning posters produced by the Amplifier Foundation in collaboration with Women’s March on Washington.
4. Girl power accounts to follow.
Here are accounts you can RT and “like” to no end: @womensmarch, @WomensMarchNYC, @emilyslist, @NARAL. And powerhouse speakers including: Gloria Steinem, Janet Mock, and Melissa Harris-Perry. Celebrities who will most likely keep you updated live from the march are: Charlize Theron, Amy Schumer, America Ferrera, and Chrissy Teigen.
