Women’s March L.A. announced Wednesday that Viola Davis, Natalie Portman, and Allison Janney will be among the thousands of Americans set to participate in the march for equal rights through downtown L.A. on Saturday, Jan. 20th. Other familiar faces, including Elizabeth Banks, Connie Britton, Sarah Hyland, Mila Kunis, Eva Longoria, Rob Reiner, Sen. Kamala Harris, and Mary Steenburgen will also take the stage, the organization revealed.
