Wednesday evening in Crystal City activists gathered outside the Hyatt Regency Hotel to protest the annual ACT for America conference being held inside.
ACT for America is a conservative grassroots organization of over 1 million members. Its mission is to secure American borders. Neither ACT nor the hotel responded for comment but members of Grassroots Alexandria openly condemned the hotel’s decision to host the event.
“Trump dog-whistles white nationalists all the time and these people are part and parcel of what he’s doing,” said Grassroots Alexandria Co-Founder Jonathan Krall.
Wednesday’s speakers included conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren and a Trump administration representative.
