Stop Steve Bannon: Add your name

There is no place for a white supremacist, anti-Semitic misogynist in the White House.

Dear Eddie,

Each day brings more and more terrible news about the government Donald Trump is assembling, starting with his appointment of white supremacist Steve Bannon as chief strategist. That's why, in the past few days, upward of 280,000 MoveOn members have already signed a petition to Congress urging lawmakers to use every tool at their disposal to make sure Bannon never holds that title.

Will you sign now to send a clear message that Bannon's bigoted views are unacceptable in the White House?

MoveOn and our allies are prepared to resist the onslaught of the Trump administration with all our might, and we're starting by opposing this dangerous appointment.

Add your name to a growing and outraged community of Americans who are joining together in one voice to say: STOP Steve Bannon!

Thanks for all you do.

Dear MoveOn member,

In one of his first big post-election moves, Donald Trump has chosen Steve Bannon, an openly misogynistic, anti-Semitic, white supremacist figure, to serve as his chief strategist and senior counsel in the White House.

Tell members of Congress that we urgently need them to step up to stop Bannon's appointment:

Members of Congress must stop Donald Trump's appointment of Steve Bannon as a White House chief strategist and senior counsel. There is no place for a white supremacist, anti-Semitic misogynist in the White House.

Once again, Donald Trump has made it clear that his administration will embrace policies that pose serious threats to millions of Americans. And it's up to MoveOn members to help make sure Congress holds the line.

Trump's appointment of Bannon has been heralded by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, as well as the chairman of the American Nazi Party and other ultra right-wing pundits who believe Bannon will be able to fulfill Trump's most bigoted campaign promises.1

Trump has said recently that he would attempt to be a president for all Americans. Yet by choosing Bannon as a top advisor in one of his first big moves, Trump continues to demonstrate that he's far more interested in peddling a dangerous and divisive agenda than in working toward real solutions to our country's challenges.

We need to build the collective force necessary to put members of Congress on notice that we expect them to vehemently oppose Bannon's appointment, using all the tools at their disposal, including holds on all further Trump appointments.

Click here to add your name now, and please share this petition with your family and friends.

Thanks for all you do.
