Singer Beyoncé has taken to her Facebook page to endorse the upcoming Women’s March on Washinton.
Taking place January 21st, the event is set to be one of the most historical events as more and more celebrities voice their support.
Its purpose is to “send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights.”
“We stand together, recognising that defending the most marginalised among us is defending all of us.” their site says.
Their mission is to create the “first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up.”
Some have taken against this idea of a protest but the site has stated that this march is entirely nonviolent.
They have laid out particular principles that each follower must obey which you can see here: www.womensmarch.com/mission.
Beyoncé is one of the many celebrities who have endorsed the march.
Taking to her Facebook, she posted the event’s logo alongside a message:
“Together with Chime for Change, we raise our voices as mothers, as artists, and as activists.”
In the lead-up to the election, Beyoncé was very much a supporter of Hillary Clinton.
She sang at one of Hillary’s campaign events, performing her hits while relaying messages between songs.
“Less than 100 years ago, women did not have the right to vote.”
“Look how far we’ve come from not having a voice to being on the brink of history.”
“I’m with her.” She has stated, before going on to play ‘Freedom’ from her album Lemonade.
Other performers such as rapper Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper and Big Sean also attended.
The Women’s March on Washington takes place on Saturday, January 21st after Inauguration Day.
But on January 19th, Solange and Common alongside others are set to perform at an alternative inauguration ball.
The event named Peace Ball: Voices of Hope and Resistance will be presented by Busboys and Poets, taking place at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Esperanza Spalding, author Alice Walker, Angela Davis are just some of the names that are also set to be making an appearance.
It is nonpartisan event which will “celebrate the accomplishments and successes of the past 4 years and the vow to continue to be the change we want to see in the world.”
On the night of the march, however, 9:30 Club in DC will be hosting the Official March After-Party, which will have a plethora of celebrities making appearances.
Tickets for this party have actually sold out but 10 pairs of tickets have been up for auction through Charitybuzz which can be bid for here until January 20th.
Planned Parenthood will be receiving any proceeds from the auction.
