If you’re planning to join the Women’s March on Philadelphia this Saturday (as, BTW, is TechGirlz’ founder Tracey Welson-Rossman), a couple of Philly designers are giving away signs and imagery to help you make a bolder statement.

Also, Amberella is hosting a sign giveaway on Saturday morning at Tattoeed Mom. She also gave signs to some marchgoers headed for D.C. on Thursday.
OWN IT, CAN’T STOP WON’T STOP! *Sign pick up info* ??? Two opportunities- • If you are going to D.C. Pick up a free sign tomorrow (Thursday) night at @tmoms upstairs from 7:30-9pm! (Sticks are not allowed in D.C. so you will get a stickless ? sign, poster style!) Signs are free, if you want to donate towards supplies go for it but I don’t expect it! I’ll only have about 30 at tmoms as the rest will be for Philly. • 2. If you are staying in PHILLY (STICKS ALLOWED YAY) for the March come meet me at @oneshotcafe Sat morning from 8:30-9:30 for a sign!!! We will leave from there for the march (taking the EL) so let’s MAKE IT REIGN and get a badass crew together. • This is an important day please make it a priority ??? • Anyone joining Saturday that wants to make a playlist? I’ll have my Bluetooth speaker ??? @outoffocus77 @gunsgarcia • THE DAY OF THE MARCH HASHTAG #POWERHEARTS AND I WILL UPLOAD YOUR PHOTOS TO MY STORY FOR THE COUNTRY TO SEE US ROAR #WILDHEARTS • #powerhearts #womensmarch #pussypower #ownit #conquer #cantstopwontstop #asiseeitpussy #NowWeConquer #MakeItREIGN #phillystreetart #streetart #staples #homedepot
And if you want to carry the spirit of the march on your phone, illustrator Meredith Jensen made a couple of on-point backgrounds available for free on her website.
