MIAMI (AP) – A coalition of immigrant rights and labor groups are planning to march in Miami against the “hateful rhetoric” from Republican front-runner Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

The protesters will march more than a dozen blocks from the Government Center in downtown Miami to the Torch of Friendship, from 2-4 p.m. on Sunday, which is also International workers day.

Tomas Kennedy, a march organizer, says the march is meant to counter what he called “the Trump effect” that has “taken over the media and silenced our voices.”

Among the organizations taking part are the Florida Immigrant Coalition, Florida New Majority, SEIU Florida, South Florida for Bernie and Women Working Together USA.
