The Lemonade singer is using her massive influence to promote the upcoming Women’s March initiative taking place this Saturday (Jan. 21) at the Capitol to protest Donald Trump, one day after the President-elect is sworn in at the inauguration ceremony.

“Together with Chime for Change, we raise our voices as mothers, as artists, and as activists,” she wrote of the feminist protest against Trump. “As #GlobalCitizens, we can make our voices heard and turn awareness into meaningful action and positive change. #WomensMarch.”

Beyonce and her husband Jay Z endorsed Hillary Clinton.

The New Yorker explains the event’s origins:

The idea for the march is credited to Teresa Shook, a retired attorney and grandmother of four who lives in Hawaii. The night after the election, she created a Facebook page suggesting a protest. By the time she went to bed, there were forty R.S.V.P.s; when she woke up, there were more than ten thousand. That same night, a fashion designer in Brooklyn named Bob Bland also proposed, on Facebook, a women’s protest. (Bland had accrued a few thousand politically minded Facebook followers during the election, after she created T-shirts that said “Nasty Woman” and sold them to raise money for Planned Parenthood.) She and Shook combined their events; a few other women volunteered as organizers; word spread.

It’s unclear if Beyonce will attend, but Katy Perry, Cher, Zendaya, Madonna and others have confirmed they will.

More celebrities are attending the Women’s March than the inauguration ceremony. Trump’s team has even stooped to hiring seat-fillers so the turnout isn’t as dismal.
