Religious and civil groups in Philadelphia are preparing to send hundreds of participants to a pre-inauguration march in Washington, D.C.

The goal of the march, which is set to take place on January 14th, is to send a message to Senate and House Democrats to stand up to Trump’s nominees to high-level positions.

People across the country need to be heard, which is why local and community leaders are ensuring that the march is well represented. Pennsylvania, as a state that voted for Trump, needs to take a stand and make sure to have a voice at the march.

To that end, civil rights activist Reverend Al Sharpton met with more than two dozen labor, church, and African-American community leaders this past Thursday to help recruit participants from Philly.

People can sign up for the D.C. march and rally at the National Action Network site.
