Women’s March on Washington Granted Official Permit

An official permit has been granted for the Women’s March on Washington protest, set to take place the day after President-elect Trump’s inauguration, D.C. police confirmed Thursday. Organizers had not been able to secure permits previously through the National Park Service as planned. The march is scheduled for January 21, 2017, and set to start its rally at Independence Avenue and 3rd Street SW, in front of the U.S. Capitol building. From there, demonstrators have planned to march west along Independence Avenue. According to the D.C. police, the permit dictates that the rally will deisperse at the southern part of the Ellipse near the White House. Organizers have yet to publicize an official route, however. The Women's March on Washington permit application estimated the number of participants to be 200,000 individuals.
