The March for Truth was a nationwide protest that occurred on Saturday, June 3, 2017, calling for a fair and impartial investigation into possible connections between Russia and President Donald Trump's campaign and administration. Demonstrations were scheduled to place in Washington, D.C., and more than 100 additional cities;[1] publicly called for events in more than 150 US cities. Scheduled speakers included Javier Muñoz and Jill Wine-Banks, as well as other actors and musicians.[1]

Planning[edit]

The organizers for the national event included Jordan Uhl, Megan Mamula, Jimmy Dahman, Andrea Chalupa, and Justin Hendrix.[2][3][4][5] The event started as a small protest planned for Washington, D.C., but grew into a nationwide protest.[5] In Iowa and in other states, local Women's March organizers helped support the planning for the March for Truth.[6] Other groups, such as Indivisible and Public Citizen, were also involved with support for the marches and rallies.[3]
