The Tuesday Turnout #1: Protect Our Care Senate Republicans are trying to jam as many confirmation hearings through their respective committees as possible to confirm Trump's notorious nominees. It must be stopped. Donald Trump riled up crowds claiming he'd "drain the swamp" and chase corruption out of Washington. But, so far, he has done nothing but nominate individuals that will continue to foster the same corruption he describe during his campaign. That’s why, on Tuesday, January 24th, members of MoveOn.org, People's Action and the Working Families Party are joining allies across the country to rally Democratic and Republican senators with a clear message: "Stop Trump's #SwampCabinet." At these rallies, part of the growing #ResistTrumpTuesdays movement, we will tell our senators and the media why Trump's cabinet is not what America wants or needs. Democrats and Republicans alike need to hear from us before this parade of greed and hate is confirmed to a cabinet that will attack working people, civil liberties, and the environment, while benefiting fellow billionaires and corporations. Will you join fellow MoveOn members and allies and attend the nearest office visit? Michigan People's Campaign will stage actions every TUESDAY across Michigan during the First 100 Days of the Trump Administration. We will resist hatred, fight back against regressive politics, all the while while casting a vision for a strong, progressive future. Action #1 will focus on defending our healthcare. Congress is already moving to dismantle the Affordable Care Act without first securing the healthcare of millions of Americans. We will stage a direct action Tuesday to demand they #ProtectOurCare. We are staging for our first action at 11AM at the United Food & Commercial Workers Local 876 union hall located at 876 Horace Brown Drive, Madison Heights, MI 48071. Specifics of the action will be revealed. Signs and banners will be distributed. We will practice chants and cheers. Then we will caravan to the target of our action to issue our demands.
