Following the Seattle Women’s March, businesses and nonprofits are hosting gatherings ranging from potlucks to panel discussions to performances to keep the activism going.
From Seattle to Sammamish, nonprofits and businesses will host a series of activism gatherings Sunday — Round 2 after Saturday’s Seattle Women’s March — for people who want to change politics or promote social justice.
The goal of Sunday’s initiative, called Womxn Act on Seattle, is to foster new conversations around gender, race, sexuality and politics, according to organizers.

Womxn Act on Seattle organizers
Nine locations, deemed neighborhood “hubs,” and some stand-alone places are hosting events ranging from potlucks to speeches to performances throughout the day.
Among the hubs is Seattle’s City Hall where local leaders, such as Mayor Jenny Durkan and City Councilmembers M. Lorena González and Teresa Mosqueda, will host a panel discussion on the “experience and perspective of women in power, with an emphasis in the intersections of race and gender. ”
Galen Erickson, 35, a relationship coach for men, will lead another discussion about physical boundaries and consent at The Riveter on Capitol Hill to explore nuances amid the national reckoning over sexual abuse and harassment.
“A lot of guys want to know what they can do, how they can do better,” Erickson said.
