VFP associate member Pam Allee is one of thousands of Americans who took to the streets last weekend to call for the impeachment of U.S. President Donald Trump, just one year after his inauguration. Pam and a few others from VFP Chapter 72 joined the Impeach Trump rally and march in downtown Portland, Oregon on January 20, 2018. The march through the streets was peaceful, despite the fact that there was no permit in place. Participants were all ages and genders, though numbers were small compared with the turnout for the 2017 Women’s March. Many of the other marches held across the country this weekend drew much larger crowds.
Despite reports of possible agitators, a lighthearted energy prevailed at the Portland demonstration, thanks in part to the many creative signs and funny props deriding the Clown in Chief. The bigger-than-life papier-mâché head was a crowd favorite.
