Comedian Amy Schumer, who promised to leave the country if Donald Trump won the election, has now called on her large social media following to join her at the Women’s March On Washington.

“January 21 I’ll be there,” Schumer wrote as a caption to an Instagram post of an event flier. “Who’s coming with me?”

Conceived by an all-female group of civil rights activists and grassroots organizers, the Women’s March On Washington (WMW) will take place the day after the president-elect’s inauguration ceremony.

Although it is billed for women, the event website states that the WMW “is for any person, regardless of gender or gender identity, who believes women’s rights are human rights.” The website also makes sure to stipulate that WMW is “inclusive for women of color,” apologetically noting that the event was founded by white women but has since incorporated “people of all backgrounds.”

Its mission statement reads in part: “We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all. HEAR OUR VOICE.”

Back in September, Schumer promised that she would move to “Spain or somewhere” if Trump won. She later went back on her vow, claiming that the whole thing was a misunderstood joke.
