Pussies Fight Back! NV Planned Parenthood Votes Volunteers Protest At Las Vegas Trump Hotel With Giant Inflatable Cats

Contact: Planned Parenthood Action Fund Media Office, 212-261-4433

“Toxic Trump” Billboard Driving Around Las Vegas Ahead of Debate

Las Vegas, NV --- Today, a group of Nevada Planned Parenthood Votes volunteers in pink t-shirts protested outside the Las Vegas Trump Hotel with giant inflatable cats. Volunteers also handed out “Protect Yourself From Trump” condoms to passersby.

The Pussies Fight Back! action comes after the Trump-Pence campaign has insulted women, bragged about and excused sexual assault, saying he could “grab women by the pussy,” attacked immigrant populations, and claimed that Mexican immigrants are “rapists.”

Tomorrow night, a “Toxic Trump” will be driven throughout the city of Las Vegas and around the debate location, from 5pm until midnight.

Quote from Brenda M. Hernandez, Nevada-based volunteer with Planned Parenthood Votes:

“We're here because we want to show that we as women have control over our own bodies, and we as women have control over who we elect as president. It’s clear that Donald Trump is dangerous for us and for this country. That’s why we’ll be working to elect Hillary Clinton this November.”
