Donald Trump’s inauguration resulted in a sizable and somewhat spontaneous march through downtown Denver on Friday.

If social media is any indication, Saturday’s planned event could be even bigger. About 38,000 people have said they would attend the Women’s March on Denver on Saturday, and people have given almost $36,000 to fund the march.
