Prominent Hollywood figures including Alyssa Milano, Debra Messing, and Rob Reiner are demanding that people participate in nationwide impeachment marches that are set to take place Tuesday evening, the night before the House of Representatives holds its vote.
The far-left, anti-Trump activist organization MoveOn is sponsoring the hundreds of impeachment marches that are scheduled to take place in cities across the country. In New York, the march is set to kick off at Times Square near 46th Street at around 5:30 p.m.
In the Los Angeles area, marches are expected to form Tuesday night at multiple locations, including downtown L.A. at Grand Park as well as in West Hollywood and Santa Monica.
Hollywood celebrities are exhorting the public to participate in the marches to pressure members of Congress to vote in favor of the articles of impeachment brought by House Democrats.
Who’s the Boss? star Alyssa Milano announced on Twitter that she will be marching in the L.A. rally.
Tell me your name and where you’ll be protesting tonight to #DefendOurDemocracy!

“I don’t know what will happen after this week’s impeachment vote,” he tweeted. “No one does. I do know that America will be stronger when lots of people show up to demand Congress do what’s right. They must see where you stand.”
