This Friday Donald Trump will be speaking in Columbia at Benedict College.
In the midst of his historic obstruction of the impeachment inquiry, let's make a statement. No one is above the law.
There will be a protest rally at the Statehouse when Trump speaks, at 3pm, Friday 10/25. (Presidential security makes it impossible to stage a protest at Benedict.) The protest is hosted by 350 Columbia, Indivisible Midlands, and Gary M. Votour.
Afterward, commit to building our party by joining fellow Democrats for our fundraiser party at the Hangar.
It is ironic that Trump is speaking at an HBCU, given his pattern of racist remarks and policies. Let's show him what it means to support HBCU's by raising money for our internship program with Benedict College and Allen University.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Thursday defended his company’s controversial decision of allowing politicians to post political ads with misleading or false claims on its platform, saying it’s “something we have to live with.”
HUD officials deliberately stalled to keep Puerto Rico from getting hurricane relief funds.
"The housing agency was supposed to issue funding notices to 18 states affected by disasters on Sept. 4. They published all the notices except Puerto Rico’s. The publication of the notice would have allowed Puerto Rico to start drafting a plan that would create the structures needed to manage the much-needed funds.
"Two years after Maria, Puerto Rico has received a third of the roughly $43 billion Congress allocated toward hurricane recovery efforts such as rebuilding tens of thousands of homes with damaged roofs, many still covered with blue tarps."
