“The biggest national emergency we face is Donald Trump’s ego,” said Sen. Ron
Wyden, who is urging us to keep up the pressure to end the Trump Shutdown and reopen the government immediately.
“Trump has painted himself into a corner with his dishonesty, incompetence, and
cruelty and made Americans pay the price—attacking our democratic institutions,
undermining civil discourse, abusing his power, obstructing justice and shutting down
the government.”
The local march joins the Women’s March on Washington, the Portland and Salem
marches and sister marches nationwide. It is sponsored by the Central Oregon Coast
NOW Foundation, Lincoln County Democrats and PFLAG.
