A high point of the #DefendFreeSpeech rally: dude dressed as a giant eyeball holding up a "DRAIN THE SWAMP = 911 TRUTH" sign. #AltWankers

I’m in downtown DC where the far-right and antifa are attending dueling rallies across the street from each other. Updates ⬇️. @WTOP #AllOutDC #DemandFreeSpeech
I don’t see a lot of movement at all between the two sides, police have a buffer zone in place on 14th Street that makes it impossible to cross over unless you walk a few blocks on F Street.

I’m out in DC this afternoon. #AllOutDC #DefendDC

On the anniversary of #Charlottesville, join the movement @privtoprog and tell your network that you will NOT BE SILENT! #ShowUp
On April 12, @MichelleSaahene and I sparked a national conversation with the video of two young men being unjustly arrested @starbucks for doing what people who look like me do every day without incident.
That conversation started a movement to build awareness that when allies educate themselves, speak up in their everyday lives and amplify on social media, they choose to be part of the solution.
