Senator Debbie Stabenow partially blocked access to Lake Michigan at Grand Haven State Park during a protest Monday morning.
The event was hosted by "All Hands On Deck," a group dedicated to raising awareness about protecting the Great Lakes.
Stabenow, along with dozens of other protesters, held hands and blocked access to a portion of the lake as another protester sang tribal music while beating a drum.
The area of the protest was near where Grand Haven City Beach and the State Park converge...
In comments after the event, Stabenow said she felt it was important to attend because of what was happening with President Trump in Washington DC.
One of the group's top issues is President Trump's proposed cuts to the Great Lakes Restoration Fund.
