Join us for a peaceful vigil outside the Iowa State Capitol before electors cast their ballots to ask them to stop Trump.
Wear purple as a symbol of courage and unity, Red and Blue coming together. Encourage electors to vote their conscience and protect our national security by abstaining or voting for another candidate.
Please bring purple glowsticks instead of candles.
1. Be Respectful. Now is the time to put party identities aside for our shared purpose. Americans of all walks of life must join together in order to stop the threat of Donald Trump. Remember this greater goal.
2. Be Somber. We want electors to feel supported to vote their conscience. We must show America the opposite of Trump: somber and unified, rather than loud and divisive. Do not answer Trump’s harassment with more of the same—that is not how we win.
3. Be Kind. Show Trump what American values really are!
Suggested signs (remember, it is Republican electors we have to convince):
Support the Electors
