The Arlington Democratic Committee enjoined Arlington residents to join fellow Virginians in a Weekend of Action coinciding with Inauguration Weekend and the Women's March. The theme of the events, “One of Many — you are not alone” and “one of many working for a Commonsense Commonwealth” was reflected on buttons being handed out at the poster party on Jan. 20, and many of these buttons were seen downtown the next day. Gene Rossi, who addressed the crowd as both a candidate for lieutenant governor and an activist, reminded those planning to march that this was the beginning of the marathon, not the end.
