June 19, 2017 GMT

DeKALB – A group will hold a demonstration against the American Healthcare Act Tuesday afternoon at Memorial Park, near the intersection of First Street and Lincoln Highway.

The gathering will take place from 2 to 3 p.m., and is sponsored by the statewide group Indivisible Illinois, and its DeKalb/Sycamore-based subgroup, Action Steps for America. Organizers say they expect at least 50 people.

According to a news release, the rally will specifically key on U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, and U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Plano. The two congressmen, whose districts include DeKalb County, voted in support of the AHCA in May.

Megan Martin of Action Steps for America said the rally will be a peaceful one.
