Planned Protest In Suffern, New York


The Rockland County Democratic Committee announced plans to protest the event. Protestors planned to arrive outside the hotel at 4:30 p.m. for a peaceful protest.

Below is what the Rockland County Democratic Committee had to say about the protest:

Hate Has No Home in Rockland. We are taking action and organizing a powerful, peaceful protest to let Governor DeSantis know the book banning, ‘Don’t Say Gay,’ and hate have no home in Rockland. We ask you to join us June 29th at 4:30 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Suffern, NY.
Your voice matters, and your presence at this protest will make a tremendous impact. Together, we can send a resounding message that Rockland County stands against hate, discrimination, and policies that undermine our democracy and harm our communities.
Fighting back against radical Republicans takes time and money, so as we organize this protest, I’d ask you to consider making a donation to support these efforts and help us support local Democrats running for office this year.

That made many wonder if the private fundraiser will still be held at the event. After learning the security detail was canceled the protest was also canceled, CBS 880 News reported Thursday morning.
