Protestors spelled out “Go Home Trump” on the lawn of the Utah State Capitol just one day before President Trump is set to travel to the state to announce that he is shrinking at least two national monuments.

The 113 protestors, all wearing white jumpsuits, laid out on the state capitol lawn on Sunday to form the message to Trump, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

Organizer and artist Cat Palmer told the newspaper that she was motivated to hold the protest to share the voices of people that feel they aren’t being represented in the federal government.

She added that state Sen. Jim Dabakis (D) encouraged her to hold the protest.

“We don’t have somebody representing our voices right now, right? That’s a problem. Sometimes when we feel helpless we make art hoping our voices will be heard,” Palmer told The Salt Lake Tribune.

“It’s an outlet for people. It’s therapeutic ... because we are feeling lost right now.”

Trump will visit Utah on Monday to detail plans to reduce the size of the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments.
