President's Day March Against Trump

Date: 
Mon, Feb 20, 2017 - 4:30pm to 6:00pm

Please join us on President's Day for a peaceful march against Trump's presidency. His undemocratic values are not fit for the American president. It is only a matter of time before he's found to be influenced by the Russian government. Join us in this march to show Trump that we will not stand for his illegal and oppressive administration!

Our rallying cry: What did Trump know? When did he know it?
