Archivists at Rutgers The University is asking protesters who participated in the March of Women in Morristown, or one of several marches in the state on Saturday, to donate their posters, posters and memories for future scholars to study.
The donated items will be part of the Women's March Archive Project in the special collections and university archives of Rutgers.
Last year, the university collected posters, pamphlets, newspapers, stickers and an embroidered goose patch from Women's March participants.
"The Women's March Archives Project is gathering these materials to document these historical events for future scholars and students," library officials said in a statement.
On Saturday, thousands of women, men and children across the state took to the streets of Morristown to demand social and political change.
Hundreds more marched in a protest on Broad Avenue in Leonia. The demonstrations took place a year after the first demonstrations were held throughout the country to protest the inauguration of President Trump.
The project focuses on women marches that took place in New Jersey.
