There's going to be a dance party at Ivanka Trump's house and everybody's invited!
LGBTQ activists WERK for Peace, 350 DC, and Trans Women of Color Collective are organizing a huge dance protest in front of the First Daughter's home in Washington, D.C. on Saturday in order to protest Donald Trump's recent rollback of important environmental regulations.
"It's time to WERK for Mother Earth. Last Tuesday, the Trump administration passed an Executive Order rolling back environmental regulations and slashed funding to the EPA, essentially halting the Federal progress the US has made in slowing the pace of climate change and on promoting clean energy.
In response, get ready to shake what your Mamma Earth gave ya and WERK it for climate justice! Thankfully, Ivanka Trump, "BFF of the gays," supposed climate czar, and brand new employee of the Trump Administration has invited us to come and party in her neighborhood, leaving behind biodegradable glitter that will sparkle in the moonlight. It turns out Rex Tillerson, former CEO of Exxon, Sec. of State and Putin's BFF, lives right next door!"
It's gonna be epic!
Several other dance protests have been organized since Drumpf took office in January (doesn't it feel like it's been a billion years?), including one in front of Vice President Mike Pence's home and another outside the Trump Hotel in D.C.
As to why this is specifically aimed at Ivanka's home, organizer Carol Aronsohn told HuffPo:
"We can't let Ivanka trick our communities into supporting and legitimizing her. We will show up to her home because the bad decisions of the Trump administration hit us in our daily lives, in our homes, and the nature we surround ourselves with."
Right on! We have to hold her accountable now more than ever!
If you're in the area, you should totally go! The protest will begin at Dupont Circle and move on to Ivanka's residence. It's expected to last from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m..
Be there or be a total square!
