On Sunday, 126 activists met at St. Stephens's Church to plan "The Trump Resistance." Many people can't get used to the idea of having Donald Trump as president.
They call themselves "Progressive Miami" and this was their third meeting. District Commissioner, Ken Russell was the keynote speaker. Here he is shown, addressing the group. The group's spokesman, Glenn Terry, said. "Most voters did not choose Trump to lead the country, we are a small part of that group. We plan to be a thorn in his side for the next four years."
Already the group has organized e-mail campaigns and congressional office visits. This Saturday half of them will be at the Women's March on Washington in our nation's capitol.
The others will be attending the "sister march" here in Bayfront Park downtown, called the "South Florida Women's Rally." Both events are free and open to the public. Their Facebook pages can give you needed information.
