While last weekend’s marches focused on women’s rights, activists on social media are hoping to use a rally on April 15 to pressure the president into releasing his tax returns.
During the campaign, Trump repeatedly promised to release his returns. However, White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said on Sunday that he no longer planned to do so because “people don’t care.”
That inspired the calls for a protest on April 15, which would normally be tax day, but because it falls on a Saturday ― and since Emancipation Day follows ― taxes will actually be due on April 18 this year.
Several people proposed the date on Twitter, and the idea quickly gained steam:
It’s not clear if anyone has begun the process of securing permits or if the organizers of the Women’s March will endorse the planned Tax Day events.
