The Women’s March on Washington is an opportunity for Americans to stand up against the expected affront to civil rights under the next president. Hundreds of thousands of marchers — women from all walks of life (including a handful of A-list celebrities) and men (yes, men are welcome and encouraged to attend!) — are expected in the nation’s capital on Jan. 21, 2017, the day after Donald Trump is inaugurated as 45th president of the United States.Given that President-elect Trump has “insulted, demonized, and threatened” so many groups — including people of color, immigrants, Muslims, and survivors of sexual assault — the goal of the march is to send a bold message to him: We are standing together.

Getting to Washington, D.C., on inauguration weekend, however, takes time and money that many of us cannot afford. That’s OK, though — there are still several ways you can join the movement, regardless of where you are in the country (or world, for that matter). Here are 25 ways to show your support for the Women’s March on Washington, even if you can’t be there in person:1. Join a smaller, local march near you. There are 616 (and counting) sister marches around the world demonstrating in smaller — but still powerful — capacities. If distance is your biggest barrier, maybe there’s a more local solution to your problem.2. Make a poster and stick it in your front yard for the day.Or, you know, until 2020.

Help them get there by chipping in some gas money.In most parts of the country, gas prices aren’t quite as obscenely high as they once were — thanks, Obama! — but still, fuel is expensive. If you wish you could attend but can’t, help another marcher out. $10 (literally) goes a long way.4. Invite friends over to watch coverage of the march together, and set a goal to help girls and wome

The Cowgirls of Color are the real deal. This isn’t some kind of novelty act; these black women are ropin’, ridin’ athletes, competing in the Bill Pickett Rodeo, the nation’s only touring black rodeo competition. The team consists of four Washington, D.C.-based women: Kisha “KB” Bowles, Selina “Pennie” Brown, Sandra “Pinky” Dorsey, and Brittaney Logan. Photo by M. Holden Warren, used with permission. Pennie Brown, 44, started horseback riding less than two years ago. She was introduced to a few black cowboys that a mutual friend knew through Washington, D.C.’s go-go music scene. Yeah, seriously. After years of friendship, one of the cowboys reached out to Brown and asked her to join an all-female rodeo team he was putting together. Brown had zero experience on horseback, let alone with a rodeo. But she was athletic and down to give it a try. “I had no idea of anything equestrian related. I had no fear. No knowledge of how horses hurt people, I was just clueless,” Brown says with a laugh. “I didn’t get a chance to see a lot of the things that a lot of people say create fear for them. It just made it super easy.” While other members of the team had more experience riding and competing in equestrian competitions, Dorsey was the only one with rodeo experience. Luckily, revered horseman Ray Charles Lockamy agreed to train them and get the Cowgirls of Color working as a unit. The small team competes in the relay, an event featuring fast laps around the ring and baton passing, similar to the 4×100 in track. It’s about speed, it’s about accuracy, and after watching men dominate the event for years, it’s about time. Brown competes in the barrel relay. Photo by M. Holden Warren, used with permission. While the Cowgirls of Color may be newer faces on the rodeo scene, they join a long line of black cowboys. The original cowboys of the American West weren’t all Clint Eastwood dopplegängers. Black riders tamed wild or rowdy horses that hadn’t been ridden. There are
