Rosie Perez tells you everything you need to know in ‘Let’s Get Ready to March’ video

By WITW Staff on January 13, 2017

With only a week to go until the Women’s March on Washington takes place the day after Donald Trump is sworn in as the nation’s 45th president, the organizers of the march have produced a video that will answer any questions people planning to attend the march may have. “Let’s Get Ready To March” is narrated by Rosie Perez and covers literally every aspect of the event, including where and exactly when it kicks off, how best to navigate the capital city (the Metro), the length of the march route, and every other logistic people attending might be wondering about. The weather is even a topic touched on in the two-and-a-half-minute video and march organizers recommend dressing warmly because winter in D.C. can see cold temperatures. But a check of the latest 10-day forecast shows Mother Nature may also be attending the March with some unseasonably mild temps. is forecasting a high of 56 degrees — rather pleasant marching conditions — on the 21st.

One other theme that’s stressed from the outset is that of inclusivity. “Everyone is welcome to march, no matter your age, your gender identity, or how you chose to vote,” march co-chairs Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez tell viewers before Perez takes over. Watch the full video below.
