#TURNOUT is a peaceful solidarity demonstration to show our unity and strength in defending the issues that are important to all of us and will be threatened under a Trump presidency including but not limited to:
+ PROTECTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT
+ WOMEN'S RIGHTS
+ LGBTQ RIGHTS
+ HEALTHCARE FOR ALL
+ EDUCATION FOR ALL
+ MINORITY RIGHTS
+ CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM
+ WORKER / UNION RIGHTS
+ PROTECTION OF SOCIAL SECURITY + MEDICAID
+ ELECTION / VOTER PROTECTION
+ OPPOSITION TO AGGRESSION AND WAR
+ YOUR INDIVIDUAL RIGHT TO PRIVACY
The event will feature speakers from community organizations, non-profits and activism groups including Texas GOP Faithless Elector, Chris Suprun and the #NoDAPL organizers. We think a Trump presidency presents a very real and immediate threat to the things we hold sacred. The march will be held two days prior to the states casting their electoral college votes on December 19 and we want to #TurnOut two days early and let our unified voice be heard. Let's send a strong message that the resistance starts now.
With control of the White House, Senate and House of Representative, the Republicans will now be able to easily pass all of the horrific legislation they have proposed. GOP Senators have passionately and relentlessly said the will fight against green energy for the coal and oil companies, they promised to end healthcare for 20 million people, they promised they will reverse gay rights and outlaw abortion, they promise to defund the Department of Education and Environmental Protection Agency, they promise to carpet bomb the middle east, they promise to fill the supreme court with a right-wing court justice, they promise to privatize social security and give those trillions of dollars to wall street, they promised to abolish the minimum wage, they promised to curtail voting rights.
The time to mobilize is now. Do not sit back now, when the world needs your involvement more than ever. Democracy requires active participation. If you don't want to be involved in the decision making, decision will be made for you. So let's peacefully #TurnOut and let our voice be heard!
