The new administration has attacked the hard-won protections of our climate, health, and communities, and the rights of people of color, workers, indigenous people, immigrants, women, LGBTQIA, young people, and more. We've fought back with a wave of protests larger than at almost any other point in history — let's make sure that we mark the 100th day of his presidency with another mass action that stands up for our communities. With everything at stake, everyone has a role to play, whether you’ve been marching for decades or you’re coming out for the first time. Join us on April 29th at 12pm ET at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History 315 E. Warren Ave, Detroit, MI 48201. Sign-up to let us know you're planning to be there. Let's march together!

Come protest Trump's proposed increases for the Pentagon and his proposed cuts for almost everything else. See details and RSVP at link above We'll protest Trump's proposed $54 billion increase in Pentagon spending and his proposed $54 billion in proposed cuts to almost everything else -- whether it's Meals on Wheels, Low Income Home Energy Assistance, Diplomacy, National Institutes for Health research grants, the EPA, Big Bird, etc. The cuts are being made to pay for Trump's pentagon increases. Why protest in front of the Dem's? Our Congresspersons, who are not comfortable with many domestic spending cuts, still don't raise the issue of pentagon spending gone wild. AT 10:05 a.m. we'll go into the meeting and, if pentagon spending is not raised, we will!
