Donald Trump is getting ready to give his first address to Congress on Tuesday, while on the other side thousands of protestors, lead by Rosie O’Donnell, will be right outside the White House.
On Tuesday, thousands will gather for the “Resistance Address” protest, according to guidance sent out by organizers.
The point of the protest is to send a “clear message outside of Trump’s front door that his agenda does not represent the values of the American people,” a news release says.
“The rally will feature speakers from diverse organizations and groups of people who have been impacted and harmed by the Trump administration’s policies, including women, people of color and members of the LGBTQ community, as well as environmental and immigrants’ rights groups,” according to a statement.
Some of the organizations that are taking part in the protest are the American Civil Liberties Union, MoveOn.org, Food & Water Watch, National Nurses United and Our Revolution.
Sean Spicer, White House Press Secretary, announced that the theme to Trump’s address to Congress will be “renewal of the American spirit.”
