Last Saturday we saw one of the largest protests in United States history. The #LoveArmy was proud to march on Washington in solidarity with over 1 million women to fight for an inclusive country where everyone counts and everyone matters. But, the Women’s March was only the beginning. It doesn't end there. Now is the time to get your friends, family, and community together to take action. Sign up to join the #LoveArmy at lovearmy.org and learn more about how you can fight hate with love + power.
Check out some of our favorite photos from the march.

Washington, D.C.—Jan. 5, 2017—The Messy Truth, a Town Hall hosted by CNN Political Commentator Van Jones, will return to CNN for two nights, on Wednesday, Jan. 11 and Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 9pmET.
On Jan. 11, Jones will moderate conversations with Americans to reflect on President Obama’s legacy and look ahead to the Trump Presidential Inauguration. Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm and former Republican Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina will also join the conversation and take questions from the audience.
The Town Halls will air on CNN, CNN International and will be live-steamed online and across mobile via CNNgo and CNN SiriusXM channel 116.
The Messy Truth will also be available On Demand the day after the linear premiere on cable VOD and on CNNgo via iPad, Roku, AppleTV, Amazon Fire, and desktop at www.cnn.com/go.
The #LoveArmy is an alternative to the hate and divisiveness gaining momentum in our communities and in our country. Democracy doesn’t just happen on Election Day. Democracy happens every day, through every interaction we have and every action we take. As divided as we may be, we have far more in common than not. Despite our difference, our common pain should give us common purpose. Let’s work together to bring the country forward.
