We’re holding nationwide People Power Action Events to stream an important Resistance Training on March 11. This marks the kickoff for the ACLU’s efforts to organize the mass resistance to President Trump’s threats to civil rights and liberties.
Right now, we have 45 People Power Action Events in the greater area around your zip code. We need at least seven more people in your area to host an event to accommodate all of the local ACLU members who live in New York.
Organizing at the local level with our neighbors and friends is the first step we can take to reclaim power for the people. March 11 is our chance to jumpstart a united, indivisible and powerful volunteer army. Then together, we’ll fight Trump’s administration when they run roughshod over ethical norms or trample on our constitutional rights.
These are difficult times. But the fact that hundreds of people have already stepped up to host local events gives me so much hope. Let’s keep pushing: more events and more people taking action!
