DOWNERS GROVE – Wheaton resident Nancy Schoot held a sign and chanted along with more than 100 others who gathered outside a Downers Grove banquet hall Nov. 16 to protest an appearance by U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Wheaton.
“I’m so frustrated,” Schoot said. “This is personal.”
Schoot, a cancer survivor, said she’s attended several protests since President Donald Trump was elected and is especially angry about efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
“It started with the health care repeal,” Schoot said.
The protest was organized by the Coalition for a Better Illinois 6th and several partner groups.
