Rafael Casal is rallying the troops…
The 32-year-old Latino writer and performance poet will be among the speakers at the Respect Rally set to happen at the Sundance Film Festival.
Casal will join a list of speakers that includes Jane Fonda, Common and Gloria Allred.
The mayor of Salt Lake City Jackie Biskupski and Utah Senate candidate Jenny Wilson will also participate in the Park City event on January 20.
Organizers expect around 3,000 to 5,000 attendees on what traditionally is the busiest day at Sundance.
“While the event is very different than last years march, it will have an equally uplifting and energizing feel for all those who attend,” says Cynthia Levine, Respect Rally Park City organizer and organizer of last year’s #MarchOnMain.
As well as the Respect Rally in Park City, gatherings and marches are planned for Los Angeles, New York and other cities on January 20.
