When Donald Trump comes to Dallas on Thursday, he'll be met with a protest outside of his rally.

The "Dump The Dufus Donald Trump Rally & Protest," hosted by a group of community organizations and activists, begins Thursday at 6 p.m. at Gilley's Club on South Lamar Street.

Organizers including Domingo Garcia with the League of United Latin American Citizens Chapter 102, Carlos Quintanilla with Accion America, Hector Flores, Dominque Alexander with Next Generation Action Network and Rev. Peter Johnson. 

"The opportunity to speak out against the racism and bigotry and the sexism of Donald Trump has to be done peacefully," Johnson said.

According to the protest poster, attendees should wear white t-shirts and bring only American flags (no wooden or steel poles).

"We are planning on having 40 to 50 marshals," said Garcia. "Most of them are retired military and also law enforcement."
