At the intersection of Blackstone and Nees the community gathered to stand in solidarity with marginalized groups and to demonstrate their willingness to fight for their friends and family. As part of the demonstration’s itinerary, there was a short march followed by speakers providing testimony and highlighting the importance of the day’s events.




“I am here today because because I needed a space with people that are like minded, that are angry with the results of the election and that are ready to fight on the frontlines on behalf of our communities. The reason that we’re here (in North Fresno) is that a lot of people that either live or come to North Fresno are Trump supporters; white folks that voted for him. The idea is to make them uncomfortable, just like they make us uncomfortable every single day of our lives, every single second of our lives. Ever since he got elected we’ve felt those looks and stares. The idea is to disrupt business, make them feel how we feel every day. That’s why it’s so important to be here.” -Grisanti Valencia, age 26
