President Trump is coming to Duluth for a campaign rally on June 20th. The progressive community is organizing several alternative events. It is the Northland’s turn to stand up for justice and show the world that we DO care about people everywhere. A HUGE TURNOUT will show the Northland rejects Trump’ mean-spirited agenda!!
