We are nearing the end of the first 100 days of Trump’s disastrous administration. From the appointment of the wealthiest, most incompetent cabinet in recent history; to the ongoing attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act; to his extremist Supreme Court appointment; to his dangerous attempts at a Muslim ban; Donald Trump has been busy destabilizing years of progress for civil liberties and civil rights in America, attacking the environment, escalating global conflict, and favoring corporations over regular Americans.
However, these have also been the first 100 days of a remarkable resistance, in which Americans from of all walks of life have taken action in historic numbers at marches, airports, and Congressional offices, on phones and social media, to defend our communities, our Constitution, and our values.
Since January 20, MoveOn members and allies have helped save health care for millions by defeating the first Trumpcare push, flooded town hall meetings during two Resistance Recesses, made history participating in the Women’s March with millions of women and men all over the world, stood up to Trump’s swamp cabinet picks, forced the recusal of Attorney General Jeff Sessions from investigations into Trump's Russia ties, pushed for the removal of white supremacist Steve Bannon from the National Security Council, consistently held Congress accountable at weekly #ResistTrumpTuesdays rallies and office visits, seen dramatic swings in Congressional special elections, and more.
We know the resistance has been flourishing across the country through thousands of actions and experiences. We want to know what it has looked like to you, how you've been engaged and inspired, or when you've been frustrated or energized, so we can effectively escalate the resistance over the next hundred days and beyond.
Your feedback is critical—it helps us learn, maximize our impact as we plan future actions, and elevate stories about the work MoveOn members are doing.
Thanks for all you do.
