Filming Inauguration Protests and #WomensMarch

On the eve of Donald Trump’s inauguration as President of the United States, WITNESS stands in solidarity with the hundreds of thousands of activists, citizens, and storytellers at the inauguration protests and over 281 Women’s Marches all across the world.

The weekend of January 20, 2017, is a unique opportunity to bolster support for marginalized groups, the fight against hate, and the demand for government accountability.

And your documentation and stories are pivotal to this cause.

WITNESS is proud to share our FILMING INAUGURATION PROTESTS AND WOMEN’S MARCHES tip sheet. We remain committed to helping individuals amplify personal narratives by using video safely, ethically, and effectively during the inauguration and beyond.



Before you march, we also encourage you to read ACLU’s Inauguration 2017: Know Your Rights – DC.
