DOWNTOWN — Activists will protest Downtown this weekend to mark the anniversary of President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
Organizers put together the march as a way to confront and fight multiple issues, including “naked white supremacy and fascism,” while helping people like refugees, according to a news release. The protest is being held Saturday, the day before the two-year anniversary of Trump’s inauguration as president.
More than 200 people have said they plan to attend the protest on its Facebook event page.
“We will take to the streets again to shut down racism, war and bigotry and save the planet,” organizers wrote on Facebook. “Multiple looming crises are confronting the human race and we must and will take collective action.”
The protest is noon-3 p.m. Saturday and starts outside Trump Tower at Wacker and Wabash. Attendees will march to LaSalle Street. Information about volunteering for the protest is available online.
