Members of UofC Resist are planning to protest an Institute of Politics (IOP) event with Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager, on February 15. 

The group intends to voice discontent with what some members perceive as the IOP normalizing Trump’s administration. 

“We invite all of Chicago to take a stand against this normalization of bigotry,” reads the Facebook event description. 

Corey Lewandowski served as Trump’s campaign advisor beginning January 2016 before he was fired in June 2016 over worries about whether he could lead the Trump campaign against Hillary. 

UofC Resist is campus group that aims to resist Trump’s policies through protests. Its first meeting was held on January 13 and recently held an emergency meeting on Monday.
