Following her active support of Hillary Clinton during the Democratic candidate’s campaign, Beyoncé has made her first anti-Trump statement, albeit in a more subtle manner. The superstar voiced her support of the upcoming Women’s March on Washington, taking place in the nation’s capital this Saturday, January 21, via Facebook.

The musician aligned with women’s rights campaign Chime for Change to make the statement. “Together with Chime for Change, we raise our voices as mothers, as artists, and as activists,” the post reads. “As Global Citizens, we can make our voices heard and turn awareness into meaningful action and positive change.”

The march was organized by several artists, politicians, and activists as a reminder of democracy to our incoming President, with the aim to promote the message that women’s rights are human rights. Although is it unknown if Beyoncé will actually attend the march, some of her female peers will be there, including Katy Perry, Cher, and Madonna.

If you’ll be in the D.C. area this weekend, register to attend the Women’s March online. There will also be several companion marches across the country if you want to get active but can’t make it to the capital.
