The organization announced members of its Artist Table — helmed by America Ferrera — which includes A-listers like Katy Perry, Zendaya, Chelsea Handler, Amy Schumer, Scarlett Johansson, Cher, and more.

In a statement, Miz Ferrera encouraged the American people to join the protest and stand together, saying:

“Since the election, so many fear that their voices will go unheard. 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. Immigrant rights, worker rights, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, racial justice and environmental rights are not special interests, they affect us all and should be every American’s concern.”

That same day, Chelsea will be hosting a sister march in Pack City, Utah, for everyone at Sundance Film Festival who would also like to take part in the demonstration.

The Netflix personality said:

“I’m honored to join the Women’s March on Washington Artist Table. By hosting a sister march in Park City, our Women’s March on Main will help send a message to the incoming administration that attacks on Planned Parenthood and our fundamental human rights are unacceptable and if we have to re-fight for rights we have already fought for and won, we will do it louder and stronger, with men by our side.”

ScarJo also spoke out about the cause, saying:

“It is my duty as an American citizen to exercise my rights, make my voice heard and stand up for what I believe in. The new administration may be very vague about specifics, but one thing has been made very clear; their intentions of reducing the availability of Women’s Healthcare and attacking her reproductive rights. I am marching on Washington to let our next president know that we, men and women alike, will not stand down or be silenced and will fight to protect our bodies and our choices.”

And Debra Messing feels the same:

“I am honored to be a member of the Artist Table. An attack on Planned Parenthood is an attack on all American women. There is no more urgent time than now to raise our voices and be heard.”

Other artists expected to participate include Uzo Aduba, Cristela Alonzo, Patricia Arquette, Danielle Brooks, Lea DeLaria, Diane Guerrero, Danai Gurira, Margo Jefferson, Angelique Kidjo, Padma Lakshmi, Shantell Martin, Frances McDormand, Julianne Moore, Hari Nef, Monica Raymund, Yara Shahidi, Alia Sherif, Kara Walker, Olivia Wilde, and Constance Wu.

Will U join in?!
