Donald Trump is a threat to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families.
The new administration has attacked the hard-won protections of our climate, health, and communities, and the rights of people of color, workers, indigenous people, immigrants, women, LGBTQIA, young people, and more.
We've fought back with a wave of protests larger than at almost any other point in history — let's make sure that we mark the 100th day of his presidency with another mass action that stands up for our communities.
Join us on April 29th at 10am in downtown Asheville at Pack Square. Let's rally and march together.
