On January 21: Marches and an Irish Wake

Women's marches are planned from coast to coast on January 21. Chartered buses galore (1200 as opposed to 200 the previous day for the inauguration) are expected to roll into the nation's capital the day after the inauguration.  If you cannot make it to the big one in Washington, D.C., there is probably one within a reasonable distance from where you live.

Marches are scheduled in New York, Boston, Minnesota, and the Bay Area, to name a few.  The idea has even spread abroad. HuffPo notes:
... march spokespeople say it would be a mistake to overlook the 370 smaller “sister marches” that have been planned in every state and on six continents that weekend ― and that are expected at last count to draw nearly 700,000 people.
