CHICAGO (AP) - Several hundred people have gathered near Trump Tower in Chicago to protest President Donald Trump.

Monday’s rally is one of several occurring across the U.S. dubbed “Not My President’s Day.”

Protesters are speaking out against White House policies on issues ranging from immigration to the environment and health care.

Marilyn and Marc Lawlor brought their three children to the rally from the Chicago suburb of North Barrington. Marilyn Lawlor says “we want our kids to see that America is a place for everyone.”

Edwin Yohnka is director of communications and policy for the ACLU of Illinois. He says the organization will fight the Trump administration in court and urged the crowd to do their part.

Yohnka says “The only way we win is if we all do it together.”
