Dear fellow MoveOn member,
Resistance is more than a slogan—it’s a movement. A people-powered movement supported and fueled by countless Americans including millions of MoveOn members like you.
This Tuesday, February 28, Donald Trump will address a joint session of Congress for the first time. His speechwriter is Stephen Miller, who helped draft the Muslim ban and who has championed discriminatory and harmful policies. We can expect that this speech will be filled with more of the same prejudiced agenda that undermines our shared values and equality. But, frankly, it doesn't matter what Trump says on Tuesday—his actions in his first 30 days in office speak for themselves.
This is why a group of organizations and activists, including MoveOn, have organized a rally—called "Resistance Address: Defending American Values in a Time of Moral Crisis"—that will take place outside the White House before Trump gives his speech to Congress.
The rally will feature people and speakers from organizations who represent the most vulnerable communities, those under attack from the Trump administration. At Tuesday's rally, we will talk about standing up for our moral values and not giving in to the oppression manifested in one hateful Trump administration executive order after another.
And after Tuesday, as we continue to march, stand united, and fight back, we need groups like MoveOn to help channel and guide this grassroots resistance—every day, every week, every month, and onward, in the long struggle ahead.
Thanks for all you do.
P.S. For those of you who can't be in Washington on Tuesday, we’ll be livestreaming the rally on social media—follow the #ResistanceAddress hashtag and watch live on MoveOn's Facebook page, starting at 6 p.m. ET (5 CT/4 MT/3 PT).
P.P.S. This Sunday, at 8 p.m. ET (7 CT/6 MT/5 PT), MoveOn will host a "Ready to Resist: What's Next after #ResistanceRecess" conference call. If you haven't RSVP'd already, click here.
