“For those of us who cannot join Rep. Grijalva in Phoenix on Tuesday night, there will be a solidarity protest and rally here in Tucson. In the wake of the tragedy in Charlottesville, President Trump has decided to hold a campaign rally in Phoenix, right next door. Tucson will not stand for it.

The protest will take place on the public sidewalk in front of the office of Pima County Supervisory Ally Miller, who reacted to the sickening events in Charlottesville by proclaiming, “I am WHITE-and proud of it! No apologies necessary.” Like Trump’s own “many sides” comment, Ally Miller’s complacency and apathy to racism will not be tolerated.

Bring your voice, your passion, and your outrage! Stand against racism!

Key Points:
– this is a peaceful, nonviolent protest
– this event is inclusive of people of all races, religions, genders, sexualities, and walks of life
– in order to keep the protest law-abiding, please read the following guidelines from the ACLU: https://www.aclu.org/sites/default/files/field_pdf_file/kyr_protests.pdf . The protest needs to stay on the public sidewalks, cannot interfere with traffic or pedestrians, and walkways cannot be blocked.”
