SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A newly formed grassroots group is making plans to put political pressure on Utah’s congressional delegation to resist President Donald Trump.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/2jHvTeG ) that Salt Lake Indivisible met for the first time Wednesday night at Wasatch Presbyterian Church. The group focused on what it called “action-based” protests of the new Republican president.

About 150 people attended the inaugural Salt Lake Indivisible meeting. The group was co-founded by Joanne Slotnik, a recently retired attorney who previously served on a judicial evaluation committee and worked for the state Attorney General’s Office, and Lincoln Hobbs, a real estate and general practice attorney.

Hobbs and Slotnik say the sole purpose of Salt Lake Indivisible is to apply consistent pressure to Utah’s representatives and senators in U.S. Congress to push back against Trump’s decisions.
