Where Might Trump and the Republicans be while in Philly?

From Wednesday to Friday, January 25-27, the entire national Republican Congressional delegation will be in Philadelphia for a retreat to plan out how to dismantle everything we care about — with Trump in town on Thursday the 26th. Let’s continue to put pressure everywhere Trump and crony politicians go — and make it clear that Trump and his friends are not welcome in Philly.

The Republican retreat will take place at the Loews Hotel, but people may be staying at other luxury hotels, frequenting fine dining establishments (particularly steakhouses), and having galas at other event spaces while in town. This map is so that people can plan creative direct actions while the Republicans are in town! Places in red are confirmed places where members of the Republican delegation will be.

If you can’t plan a demonstration, feel free to call these establishments and ask them to post a sign pledging no service to Republicans in town planning their agenda of hate. If you make a call and would like to share information, send an email to phillytrumpshate@gmail.com.

If you are an owner of one of these establishments and would like to confirm you will not be hosting any members of the Republican delegation while they are in town to plan to dismantle healthcare, deport immigrants and spread hate, you can post a sign in your window, saying such and send a photo to phillytrumpshate@gmail.com.

Here are some example of recent demonstrations that could be replicated:
