“Saturday Night Live is not a news program, it is a cultural touchstone. Providing such a platform for somebody who so clearly holds false and disparaging opinions of so many segments of this country is a dangerous proposition that legitimizes Trump’s hateful views and rewards his hate speech. NHMC, numerous other organizations, and more than 460,000 individuals agree: Saturday Night Live is no place for Donald Trump,” said Alex Nogales, President and CEO of the National Hispanic Media Coalition, one of the lead organizers of the event. Mr. Nogales is one of many individuals who will offer remarks at the event.
Members of the press and concerned citizens are welcome at the event.
