Environmental advocates protested at U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam's office Monday, speaking out about fears that the Trump administration will reverse progress made to protect the globe from climate change.
About 200 people crowded into a conference room down the hall from Roskam's office at DuPage Airport in West Chicago holding placards that read "Follow the science" and "Climate Action Now." The protest was timed to occur during Trump's first 100 hours as president.

• Hundreds of thousands of women gathered in Washington on Saturday in a kind of counterinauguration after President Trump took office on Friday. A range of speakers and performers cutting across generational lines rallied near the Capitol before marchers made their way toward the White House.
• They were joined by crowds in cities across the country: In Chicago, the size of a rally so quickly outgrew early estimates that the march that was to follow was canceled for safety. In Manhattan, Fifth Avenue became a river of pink hats, while in downtown Los Angeles, even before the gathering crowd stretched itself out to march, it was more than a quarter mile deep on several streets.
