The Trump Resistance Works To Find Its Feet In PA

HARRISBURG (WSKG) — On a rainy Saturday afternoon, a group of about 50 activists are gathered in a conference room in Harrisburg.  There are people from across the state here. Some are well-established, like Planned Parenthood or unions like AFSCME–which owns the conference center where the meeting’s being held. But many others are new–they popped up almost spontaneously after Donald Trump was elected president.  As a whole, these groups form a new coalition called Pennsylvania Together. This is its first conference, and it marks the first time many of them are meeting each other in person. “For me, as for many people, the day of the election was absolutely devastating,” said organizer Hannah Burton Laurison when asked what prompted all this.
