National Latino Groups Call on Community to Join the Marcha to Stop the Hate #Basta Trump
November 6, 2015
WASHINGTON, D.C.– On Saturday, November 7, 2015 at 6:00 P.M. members representing Latino organizations will be marching from the Trump Tower to NBC 30 Rock. The march will be held in protest of Donald Trump hosting the widely popular comedy show, Saturday Night Live (SNL). There will be a press conference at NBC 30 Rock at 7:30 P.M. with leaders from the organizations and elected officials.
There has been strong opposition to Trump hosting SNL this Saturday. Some individuals have suggested that we should not prevent Trump from hosting SNL but that instead, we should voice our opposition by not watching. This view misses the point. Trump has targeted Latinos with his racist and xenophobic remarks and his rhetoric is causing real harm to the Latino community. We cannot allow him the time nor a platform such as SNL to advance such views
