The anti-Trump activist group Dayton Indivisible For All is calling on Republican 10th District Congressman Mike Turner to hold a town hall meeting in the wake of the weekend's violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. Members of the organization hand-delivered a letter to Turner's office in downtown Dayton asking that Turner openly condemn groups that promote white supremacy and racial violence.

Organizers with the group Dayton Indivisible for All planned the rally to coincide with a county Republican Party fundraiser being held at the venue. Republican 10th District Congressman Mike Turner had originally been expected to appear at the event but was not able to attend.

Dayton Groups Rally Over Proposed Trade Agreement

May 18, 2015

Dayton unions and community groups plan to rally today in front of Republican U.S. Congressman Mike Turner’s Dayton office. They’ll urge him to vote no on fast tracking the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. The fast track legislation would make it possible for the president to push the large trade agreement through congress quickly with no amendments.

Brian Mason, the political coordinator for IUE-CWA Local 755, thinks the agreement would lead to more jobs being outsourced to Asian countries.
