More than 100 protesters gathered in Federal Plaza for a Trump Out Now! Rally and Car Caravan on Martin Luther King Day Jan. 18 demanding changes from President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris just two days before their inauguration. The crowd condemned outgoing President Donald Trump and his white supremacist supporters for their insurrection attack on the Capitol on January 6.
Various progressive organizations, including Black Lives Matter Chicago and Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, came together for the rally asking for progressive changes in education, immigration policy, criminal justice reform, policing, health care and other issues.
