January 20th will be a day to remember for all Americans, but more than a memory of Trump’s first day in office, we here in Corvallis have the unique opportunity to make history ourselves, and to march in peaceful protest through the streets of one of our nation’s most liberal cities.
Over two months away and Portland’s peaceful protest has garnered the interest of over 12,000 Facebookers, and over 5,000 have already RSVPed. Think thousands and thousands of people, all together, united over a common cause, making waves of positive change. I mean I I’m generally uncomfortable around people, especially in closed quarters, and even I want to go.
Portland’s peaceful protest will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. at Pioneer Courthouse Square, 701 SW 6th Avenue in downtown Portland on January 20th, 2017, on Donald Trump’s first day in office. Violence and rioting are not encouraged. See you there!
