The new campaign suggests supporters to take 10 different actions in the next 100 days to express their opposition to the Trump Administration.

After getting a massive support for its protests on Saturday against the new U.S. President Donald Trump, the Women’s March on Washington (WMW) has decided to extend its campaign for 100 days.

Launched Sunday under the title “10 Actions for the first 100 Days,” the new WMW campaign suggests supporters to take 10 different actions in the next 100 days to express their opposition to the Trump Administration.

The actions include writing a postcard to the Senators about the important issues such as ending gender-based violence, reproductive rights and women’s health, LGBTQIA rights, worker’s rights, civil rights, immigrant rights, religious freedom, environmental justice, and so on.

WMW also suggests the protesters to take a photo of their postcard and use the #WhyIMarch tag to post it on social media.

On January 21, according to WMW, over 5 million people worldwide and over 1 million in D.C. participated in the demonstrations that it had organized.

The protests had such a great impact that President Trump also got rattled. He said Sunday that he recognizes the rights of people to express their views.

But added that these protesters should have voted in the presidential election to defeat him. As a slew of celebrities delivered explosive speeches against Trump in the WMW rally on Saturday, Trump said in his tweet that celebs hurt cause badly.

Along with WMW demonstrations, dozens of other groups in the U.S. have been protesting against Trump, as they are not willing to accept him as their President.

Most believe the election that Trump won in November was not fair, as Russians supported Trump by hacking election-related data.

Although Trump managed to attract voters with his sensational rhetoric, many Americans also believe he is not fit to become the President because of his uncivil language and unstable thoughts.

While Trump received majority of the 538 state-by-state electoral votes to win the presidency, his rival Hillary Clinton won 48.2% of the popular vote compared with 46.1% for Trump.

In other words, Clinton collected nearly 3 million more votes than what Trump got in the November election. But the U.S. election system declared Trump as the winner.

The Inauguration Day ceremony took place Friday when Trump began his four-year term as the President.
