Bold Nebraska protesters held a rally in Omaha Monday to convince senators to reject some of president elect Trump’s cabinet picks.

The group held a rally at Sen. Deb. Fischer's office as part of a nationwide "Day Against Denial" calling on all 100 U.S. Senators to reject President-elect Trump's climate-denying cabinet selections.

Those in attendance said they were fighting against Trump’s cabinet picks including Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon, for Secretary of State, Scott Pruitt for EPA Administration, Ex-Gov. Rick Perry for Secretary of Energy and Rep. Ryan Zinke for Department of Interior.

“I want to make sure the Senator knows that this is important issue and there is a lot of people who care about the climate and the choice is here are you on the side of science or are you on the side of Exxon, big energy companies, are you for them or for science? It's one of the other,” said attendee Tom Tilden.

Rally goers said anyone who denies climate change shouldn't be in the White House cabinet.
