The third annual Women's March LA is coming up on Saturday, and those of you who plan to attend probably have some questions. (Those of you who don't plan to attend might have some questions too, but that's for another time and another post).

The march is expected to unfurl as follows:

  • 8:30 a.m.: Tongva Nation blessing at Pershing Square in downtown L.A.
  • 9 a.m.: Speakers
  • 10 a.m.: March to City Hall
  • 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.: More speakers

At the moment, speakers include Laverne Cox, Connie Britton, Laura Dern, State Senator Maria Elena Durazo and more.
No rain is expected, but the forecast is partly cloudy with highs in the mid-70s.

Those headed from Pershing Square to City Hall will follow a route beginning at 6th Street, then headed northeast for approximately six blocks down Broadway, Spring, Hill and Olive streets. Those streets will be closed to traffic.

A different march planned by OneLife LA will also be held in DTLA that day.

The Los Angeles Department of Transportation provided us with this somewhat confusing (who is Tom Adam?), but ultimately helpful map of the area for the day of the marches:
