Tell us about your #ResistanceRecess event

Thousands of people took part! How was your #ResistanceRecess event?

Dear Eddie,

Thank you for attending a #ResistanceRecess event!

During the month-long congressional recess in August, MoveOn members, mobilizers, and allies showed up at congressional town halls and lawmakers' offices across the United States for the third time this year with over 650 events happening between July 28-September 4 from Alaska, to Maine, to Arizona, to Florida.

We were there to:

  • demand that Congress censure Trump for failing to unequivocally denounce white supremacy after the Charlottesville, Virginia,  terror attack,
  • stand up to Republican attacks on immigrant youth by demanding a clean Dream Act,
  • advance Medicare for All, and
  • hold accountable Republicans who voted to take away health care from millions.

And in districts where members of Congress were nowhere to be found, MoveOn members held our own constituent town halls.

Can you take a few moments to tell us about your #ResistanceRecess event?

Your feedback is critical—it helps us learn and maximize our impact as we plan future actions.

We will continue to expand on the pressure we built during #ResistanceRecess by holding our next week of action between October 15-22. Click here to see if there's already an event registered near you and if not, sign up to host an event in October. We'll send you more details as the actions get closer on how to organize the event.

Don't forget to complete the survey about your #ResistanceRecess experience!

Thanks for all you do.

P.S. If you have pictures of your event, please send photos to and post them on social media. (Be sure to include #ResistanceRecess and tag @MoveOn in your post.) If you took Facebook Live or other video during the event, please share the link to your videos here.

Want to support our work? The MoveOn community will work every moment, day by day and year by year, to resist Trump's agenda, contain the damage, defeat hate with love, and begin the process of swinging the nation's pendulum back toward sanity, decency, and the kind of future that we must never give up on. And to do it we need your ongoing support, now more than ever. Will you stand with us?

Yes, I'll chip in $5 a month.

No, I'm sorry, I can't make a monthly donation.
