The NAACP is encouraging people to protest the president's visit to attend the college football national championship game by carrying anti-Trump signs and wearing white - an effort to mock the "snowflake" term used by some Trump supporters, according to the news service.
The white was meant to mock the "snowflake" insult that Trump supporters have made against those who oppose the US president.
Chapter president Richard Rose told USA TODAY Sports on Monday that the organization will also try to make noise on social media before and during the game, by directing tweets with the hashtag #DontCome at President Trump throughout the day and using #AllTrumpLies during the game.
The scene was relatively quiet Monday morning outside the stadium in downtown Atlanta where the College Football Playoff title game was set to be played, with some fans milling about but no anti-Trump protesters in sight.
Atlanta police said they would be setting up several designated areas for protesters and won't interfere with demonstrations unless protesters break the law.
Rose said the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP will not officially participate in any physical gathering before or during the game due to weather and security concerns.
And some of them may be in the stands, protesting the President, when the University of Alabama takes on the University of Georgia at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in college football's biggest game. As of 7 p.m., about 30 people marched in the rain, some holding signs that read "Keep your tiny hands off my button", and "The City of Atlanta + Cobb County Hates Trump".
Refuse Fascism ATL, another group, is also reportedly planning to protest the president's visit by taking "a knee against Trump" outside of CNN's world headquarters ahead of the kickoff.
One protester, Katrina Griessman, said she was upset that Trump chose to attend "this particular, sacred, Georgia-Alabama game".
