“Get Your Hate Out of Our State”
Yesterday, Donald Trump hosted a campaign event at Grumman Studios in Bethpage to rally support for his xenophobic, misogynistic, racist, hateful rhetoric that threatens the progress we fight for every day.
But his message was not met without opposition.
As supporters entered the venue, hundreds of protesters gathered to send a clear message: Trump’s hateful platform does not represent Long Island. Chant’s ranged from “Get your hate out of our state!” to “The people united will never be defeated!” We stood together to show Long Island, our country, and the world that we do not tolerate threats against our families, our friends, our neighbors and our communities.
Donald Trump’s backward ideas on issues ranging from immigration reform to the economy are exactly the type of policies that we organize against every day. In order for us to keep building a better tomorrow we need the capacity to keep us going.
Will you make a donation to help fund the fight for a more progressive Long Island?
Yesterday’s successful protest proved the LIPC’s organizing power. But we cannot do this without your help. A successful movement will need both people power and the funds to keep our operations going. With your help we can continue to grow Long Island’s progressive movement. A monthly donation as small as $5/month will help fuel the fight.
