“Protecting the civil rights of citizens and the voting rights of people that have been excluded, providing health care for all Americans and equal opportunity should supersede any of the beltway partisan fights that we are inevitably headed into,” the group’s website and event page reads. “Groups come and go, elections come and go, but some things must remain constant and non-negotiable.”

The march comes on the holiday weekend Americans commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — renowned for his tireless work to end racism and promote civil rights in the 1950s and ’60s.

Later on Saturday, a “Here to Stay” rally supporting immigrant and minority rights followed at a Washington church.

“The Trump team has already announced that some of its first measures will target immigrants and Muslims,” the rally’s online statement reads. “We will join hands and stand together to oppose criminalization, mass deportation, and hate crimes. We are #HereToStay and we shall not be moved.”

In a polarizing campaign, candidate Donald Trump made promises to “build a wall” along the border with Mexico as well as start a Muslim registry — ideas which immigrants, minorities, and a broader range of liberals have used as grounds to stage protests since his election in November. (IANS)
