Women’s March on Washington gets permit for location

WASHINGTON — It’s official. The Gathering for Justice, also known as the Women’s March on Washington, has a permit for what is expected to be a massive rally and march after the inauguration.

WTOP has confirmed organizers with the Gathering for Justice have a permit for its previously released location near the Capitol.

D.C. police confirm it approved the permit application for a rally at 3rd Street and Independence Avenue in Southwest on Jan. 21.

Organizers have previously said they expect more than 100,000 participants and applied for a rally double the size.

The permit outlines a dispersal area at the southern portion of the Ellipse, police said.

Organizers have said ralliers will then march down Independence Avenue, but do not plan to release more details about the route.
