NEW YORK — America Ferrera, Roxane Gay and Jill Soloway are among those contributing essays to a book marking the one-year anniversary of January's Women's March.

Dey Street, an imprint of William Morrow, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that "Together We Rise" will come out Jan. 16. Billed as "the definitive oral and visual chronicle" of the nationwide demonstrations held the weekend after President Donald Trump's inauguration, the illustrated book is a collaboration between the Women's March organizers and Conde Nast. Writings by New Yorker editor David Remnick, Teen Vogue editor-in-chief Elaine Welteroth and others also will be included.

March organizers plan to donate proceeds to three grassroots, women-led organizations: The Gathering for Justice, SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective and Indigenous Women Rise.
