It's being called a "sister march" to coincide with the Women's March in Washington D.C. on Saturday, January 21. Thousands of people are planning on organizing in Asbury Park on Donald Trump's first full day in office to show support for women's and civil rights.

It started with a text. A small group of girls wanted to gather with their friends and march in Asbury Park because they were unable to make it to D.C. As of this writing, the number of participants planning on marching is roughly 1,300.


With the anticipated attendance growing, so is the cost to pull off the march. According to the 'Women's March Asbury Park" GoFundMe page, $5,000 was needed to cover the cost of police, parking and sound equipment. 227 people raised over $6,000 in 24 hours.

"Jennifer," the operator of the GoFundMe page says:

The march is a women's march to support all human rights. This march is organized by women. Women's rights and respect for women are of course at the forefront of this event, however, the march is to express concern for all of humanity. The march is about what we stand for. The march is about standing together. The march is about being heard.

The march will begin at 12:30 p.m. on Cookman Avenue and continue to the Asbury Park Boardwalk, where they will stop for a "moment of gratitude." Porta will host an afterparty at the conclusion of the event.
