NEW YORK (AP) — Robert De Niro, Sally Field and other celebrities plan to join the mayors of New York and Minneapolis to rally cities to chart their own course on health care, climate change and other issues during President-elect Donald Trump's administration.
That's according to organizers of the demonstration. It's set for Thursday evening in front of Trump International Hotel and Tower in Manhattan. Groups including Greenpeace, Planned Parenthood and MoveOn.org are involved.
Organizers say they expect thousands of people, including a growing list of actors, musicians and dignitaries.
Actor Mark Ruffalo says in a statement that cities and towns across the country have the "power to protect people and the environment" and to unite to oppose what participants see as harmful policies Trump may advance.
The Republican takes office Friday.
