Organizers in the nation’s capital hosted a hometown resistance to President Donald Trump: Nearly a thousand people gathered in Washington, D.C.’s DuPont Circle during to voice their displeasure with the current administration. The crowd heard remarks from activists, including candidates for government representatives, Native Americans who had been on the ground in Standing Rock, and an undocumented student at Georgetown University.
