A local group will be hosting an event to counter the rally.

The event, known as "Valley United for Fair Democracy" will be hosted by the Youngstown Solidarity Network, as well as Mahoning Valley Queer Action, Youngstown Peace Vigil, Our Revolution Mahoning Valley, and Mahoning Valley DSA.

The event will take place at the corner of Market and Front Street near the entrance to the Covelli Centre.

Organizers say they will address issues such as free and fair elections, equality under the law, accessible voting, accountable elected officials, fair and equal treatment for all, and exercising freedom.

The event is scheduled from 1:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. with a press conference and rally taking place at 3:00 p.m.
