Join us for a protest outside this media event! Make your opinion of Paul Ryan known!
When: Monday August 21, 2017 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. The start time is 5 p.m. with the intention of being on the 6 p.m. news. If you can’t attend between 5-6 p.m. arrive when you can!
Where: Outside the Racine Theatre Guild 2519 Northwestern Ave, Racine, WI 53404

The Racine police are the in the process of designating areas (supporting and against) to protest outside the Racine Theatre Guild. In light of Charlottesville, we are asking for a peaceful protest that shows our opinion of Paul Ryan. This is NOT a protest against Trump or Ryan supporters.

A map of protest areas will be posted as soon as the Racine police has sent it to us, so stay tuned.

We are also checking about parking and IF there is a designated area, that will be included on the map.
