UPDATED with street closure info,
Three women from New Jersey are on the cover of TIME Magazine, running for office (and winning) and their game is strong. There’s going to be a roar tomorrow, an echo of last year’s Women’s March in Washington, which was the largest single-day demonstration in recorded U.S. history. This year, fewer, smaller marches. That’s less important than the point that this fighting spirit has staying power. The Resistance is run by women. Here are details & logistics info for Morristown, sister marches in NJ, and in NYC and Philly.

Where: Meet at Morristown Town Hall, 200 South Street, Morristown, NJ (map), march through Morristown ending at Morristown Green
