This action is the culmination of 18 months of lies, deception and betrayal of the American people by this corrupt administration. The selling out to Russian president Putin by Trump in Helsinki is a triggering event. We must stand up against this corruption and stand up for our democracy.
Important: The national event organizers chose “sundown” and a “vigil” theme. We are starting earlier (at 6:30 pm) because we want visibility and we want passersby to see our signs. It’s also safer at the large intersection that we have selected.
Please stay focused on the specific message of this event: the treasonous behavior of our current president and the administration supporting him. Use your imagination. Here are some generic sign ideas: “Stand Up for Our Democracy”, “Impeach Trump”, “Traitor”, “Get Russia Out of Our Whitehouse”, “Putin’s Puppet”, “End This Corrupt Administration”, “Lock Him Up”. “GOP Must Hold Trump Accountable”. Let’s keep our signs family friendly too.
Remember, bigger signs are better - so passing motorists can more easily get the message. You can always take a flash drive in to a UPS store or Staples or Officemax and have them blow it up onto something you can tape to larger posterboard.
We would like to recommend parking at either the Kohl's store parking lot or the Providence Medical Center parking lot. In both cases, please park as far from the buildings as you can so that people who need to use these buildings, particularly the medical center, can use them easily. There is also street parking just east of the Kohl's store parking lot. An even better option would be to park at the nearby Sherwood Plaza area - https://goo.gl/maps/J7FgxuamDAH2 - The Sherwood Police Dept recommended this.
The event location is at a busy intersection. We have held rallies here before with no safety issues but we want to remind people that cars travel on 99W at about 45 mph. Please stand only on the sidewalks and enter the intersection only when you have a green light and walk sign indicating it is safe to cross. Please be courteous and allow passersby the ability to use the sidewalks at this intersection.
