Chelsea Handler To Lead Anti-Trump Women’s March in Utah

Chelsea Handler will be at Utah’s Sundance Film Festival when President-elect Donald Trump gets sworn in next week. But that won’t stop the comedian from making her opposition heard, as she’ll be leading a women’s protest in Park City on January 21 against the new administration.

“If there’s anything I learned in the last year, it’s that we need to be louder and stronger than ever about what we believe in, so I joined some incredible women from around the country to bring our voices together in the streets of Park City,” she said, in a statement to Vulture.

Handler’s demonstration will be coordinated with the Women’s March on Washington, which is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of protesters the day after inauguration. The women and their supporters are protesting what they say are Trump’s anti-women comments and policy ideas.

Handler was vocal in opposing Trump, spearing him on her Netflix show and savaging his surrogates, including Ann Coulter.
