Philly women plan anti-Trump protest

Charles Mostoller

Wednesday, Philadelphians marched through the city in protest of Donald Trump’s win and his policies. Tonight, women will do it againon the steps of City Hall.

The event, Our 100: Philly Women in Formation, Vigil & Protest, is led by the same group of women who protested Donald Trump and the Republican Party in the last month under the slogan, #GOPHandsOffMe. They will gather at 5 p.m. at City Hall, and will hold a candlelight vigil and protest.

As of 8:45 a.m., the event already had more than 2,000 RSVPs on Facebook.

According to the event page, organizers said “we are showing the entire country that the leadership of women of color does not end with this election. We will remind people that this election was and is about our lives –Black lives, women’s lives, immigrant lives, and the lives of LGBTQ folks.”

“We are leading the way to create a country where we can live with dignity and thrive in lives free from inequality and sexual, racialized, and gender-based violence,” the event page said.

Participants are asked to wear black and bring a candle and a small cup.

Organizers didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
