A division of a national advocacy organization plans to protest the planned commencement address of Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan at Benedictine College tomorrow morning in Atchison, Kansas.
According to Johnson County Council Organizer for moveon.org, Al Frisby, over 100 protestors from Atchison, Kansas with representatives of the Topeka and Wichita “move on” chapters, have committed to line the sidewalks outside Benedictine beginning at 8:30. Frisby says the non-profit national organization, started in the late 1990s in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, opposes several of the policies of Ryan, including his proposed federal budget, and his stance on Pell Grants.
Frisby says the group is not organizing to protest the commencement itself.
