FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - People in Fort Wayne joined hundreds across the country for rallies in hopes of getting the U.S House of Representatives to vote in favor of impeaching President Trump- Carol Anne McMillen is one of them.
"I've never been out here or done anything like this before, but I knew I had to do it for my children and grandchildren to show them I'm standing up for character,"McMillen said.
This event is organized by impeach.org. They're calling it the “Impeach and Remove” rally. It falls on the eve of the U.S. House of Representatives vote on impeachment articles.
"People want to express their opinion on how they feel the hearings have been going. As far as Trump’s impeachment hearings lately, and to encourage representatives to vote properly based on the information put before them and not based on their own special interest or based on their party's interest," organizer Taylor Crane said.
Sandy Leclear said what they're doing here is fighting corruption and hopefully lawmakers will pay attention.
"It could've been pouring rain and I would be here for this because I feel it's so important," Leclear explained.
