Protesting in Washington, DC - in front of the White House and on the National Mall - is as American as apple pie. Now the Trump administration is now trying to severely limit our constitutional right to gather peacefully and petition for redress. If enacted, Trump’s plan would:
- Close 80% of the White House sidewalk
- Put new limits on spontaneous demonstrations
- Initiate fee for protesting charges
The public has until October 15 to comment on Trump’s repressive plan to close down protesting in Washington, D.C. Send a message now to the National Park Service demanding our right to protest be protected.
For details of the proposed changes and what they would do, read from the ACLU.
