The group, called the “United Community Response To Donald Trump”s Ongoing Hatred And Racism,” released the following statement prior to the march:
“One of our community’s most distinguished elders, a local and national civil and human rights legend and icon, a man who some of us refer to as the sage, Minister Franklin D. Florence Sr., has called us together to develop a united community response and demand for an apology regarding Donald Trump’s ongoing hateful, racist, rhetoric and policies, the latter of which are causing devastatingly-negative affects on the lives of millions of poor people of color in particular, as well as poor people in general.”
The protesters began marching from the Central Church of Christ on Saturday, and ended at the Liberty Pole downtown to hold the demonstration.
