In their First Amendment permit application with the National Parks Service, they estimated 200,000. Nearly 250,000 people have expressed interest in attending on their Facebook event page.

"Since the election, so many fear that their voices will go unheard," Ferrara said in a statement. "As artists, women, and most importantly dedicated Americans, it is critical that we stand together in solidarity for the protection, dignity and rights of our communities."
