Akron Indivisible plans rally for Affordable Care Act Saturday

AKRON, Ohio - At least two local chapters of Indivisible, a national movement to resist President Donald Trump's agenda, have planned a joint rally for this weekend to defend the Affordable Care Act.

The Rally to Defend the Affordable Care Act is scheduled for 3-5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Summit County Courthouse, 209 S. High St. in downtown Akron.

Facebook event pages show about 40 people are planning to attend and 90 more are interested.

The Affordable Care Act is a hot political issue, as Republicans pledge to repeal and replace the law, also known as Obamacare. Akron Indivisible Defense posted, "We should not put insurance companies back in charge of our health care."

On its event page, Indivisible Cuyahoga Falls is asking for volunteers, sign-makers and speakers.

Since Indivisible posted its online guide earlier this year, "Indivisible: A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda," with best practices for reaching state and federal lawmakers, local Indivisible groups have sprung up in every state. Currently, 19 groups have organized within 20 miles of Akron.

Highland Square in November hosted a Love Trumps Hate rally, which drew about 200 marchers.
