As excerpted from The Record.

Expressing her unbridled support, Assemblywoman Susan Talamantes Eggman, D-Stockton, addressed the rally, noting early on that “it’s good to see us out here today, although it’s sad that we’re coming out here because we need to raise our voices. But raise our voices we must.”

Eggman shared that on Monday, her 8-year-old daughter was watching the History Channel and asked her why the U.S. fought during World War II. Eggman related it to today’s fight.

“We stand up against people destroying other people’s lives just so they could get ahead, and now 75 years later and we see the KKK marching in our streets and we see the president of our United States defending them and saying there is good people on all sides."
