Supporting Organizations: Chicago Latino Collective
Throughout all of the protesting going on I think we needed a protest centered around the hatred and lies Trump has spread about Mexicans and immigrants. Remember: We did not cross the border. The border crossed us.
This protest is definitely open to ALL Latinos no matter where you are from. Chicago has a very large Latino community and we need to come out in solidarity with each other.

OUR STATEMENT OF PRINCIPLES:
In solidarity and unity with partner demonstrations throughout this country, we are proud to stage in Chicago – a Sanctuary City – a rally to protest the policies and actions of the current White House. While Donald Trump is technically our President, we protest fiercely on this important day – in honor of the Presidents who have come before him – his ability or intention to represent any of us in any real capacity.
(See website for continuation of statement and more details.)
Supporting Organizations: ANSWER Chicago in collaboration with Black Lives Matter Women of Faith, CODE Pink Chicago, Gay Liberation Network, La Voz de los de Abajo, and People United Against Oppression.

We must stay in the streets and keep this new mass movement to Stop the Trump Agenda going strong. The right-wing resurgence can only be defeated by an organized independent resistance of the people from the grassroots.
The group will rally at Wacker and Wabash at 12 PM and then march to the Federal Plaza at 1 PM.

Reproductive rights, including abortion, are under attack everywhere in this nation. Illinois, and the Chicago area in particular, have long been known as a safe haven for abortion care in the midwest region. We’re holding this rally to defend the rights we already have, and to demand their protection and expansion.
Where are the President’s tax returns? He is Chicken Don if he does not release them!
Inspired by the last few months of protest, particularly the Women’s March, we are going to relentlessly demand the President’s taxes. We want to know who he owes money to and what foreign goverments have leverage over us. Above all, FULL disclosure.
This protest has ZERO BARRIERS TO ENTRY. That means whatever cause you celebrate, YOU ARE WELCOME. This includes Democrats, Independents, Republicans and every religion or lack thereof, ethnicity, and gender, orientation, etc.. We are alarmed at Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump’s attempt to enrich his family at taxpayer expense.
If you want to administer, have an idea, or comment let’s hear it.
Talking to the appropriate officials about permits. We will let you know more soon!
