Organizers of the Women’s March Los Angeles announced Thursday a list of celebrities who will participate in the 2018 event, slated for Jan. 20.

Scarlett Johansson, Alfre Woodard, Laverne Cox and Olivia Munn are just a few of the stars of stage and screen who will be on hand for the second annual march.

Last year’s Women’s March Los Angeles — held on the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration as president — drew an estimated 750,000 people as part of a national day of action to support women’s rights, human rights, civil liberties and social justice.

Others scheduled to take the stage at rallies before and after the march include Chloe Bennet, Rowan Blanchard, Yvette Nicole Brown, Sophia Bush, Lea DeLaria, Tony Goldwyn, Paris Jackson, Megan Mullally, Nicole Richie, Catt Sadler, Adam Scott, Olivia Wilde and Larry Wilmore.

Along with local politicians and civic leaders, musicians Idina Menzel, Andra Day, Rachel Platten, Maxwell, and the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles with Melissa Etheridge are also set to participate.

The event begins at 8:30 a.m. in Pershing Square, with the march beginning at 10 a.m. and concluding in Grand Park around 3 p.m. It’s also expected to stream on Facebook Live.
