Women's March convention is coming to Cobo Center with its first national event since its January Women's March on Washington, which drew millions of protesters to Washington, D.C., on the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration.

Called the Inaugural Women's Convention, the event will run Oct.27-29 and will include resistance training work shops, inspirational forums and leadership lessons as the group tries to mobilize in advance of the 2018 midterm elections.

The goal of the Women's March is to bring social change by uniting diverse women through activism on a range of issues, including ending violence, environmental justice and supporting women's reproductive rights, along with civil rights and so much more. The Detroit Free Press has more information.
