On the anniversary of the largest single day protest in American history, the organizers of the 2017 Women’s March on Washington gathered in Las Vegas to roll out the next phase of the movement. This year, it’s all about the ballot box. Forecasters are already pointing to factors that suggest 2018 will be a wave election, but if the women behind last year’s worldwide demonstrations have anything to do with it, it will be more like a tsunami. Women’s March Inc. is determined to register one million people before this year’s midterm elections. With that goal in mind, they had volunteers stationed throughout the crowd with clipboards signing demonstrators up to vote.

A Safe Bet

Vegas was chosen, according to Women’s March Inc. co-president Bob Bland, because Nevada is a swing state, is hosting two competitive 2018 races (for Senate and governor), home to thousands of Salvadorans at risk of losing their temporary protected status and was, earlier this year, the site of the largest massacre in modern U.S. history.

Do You Believe?

Cher showed up to applaud the marchers. “This is one of the worst times in our history, and that’s why I honestly believe that women are going to be the ones who fix it,” Cher said. “If you want a job done right, get a woman.”
