The Trump Administration has launched an all-out assault against working class and poor communities and the environment. Now to organize a coordinated grassroots fightback, the People’s Congress of Resistance will convene in Washington, D.C. on September 16-17. Grassroots resisters will be traveling from all 50 states to attend this historic gathering.
The People's Congress of Resistance will be the voice of the people – an expression of direct democracy of those who are left out and kept out of the Congress of Millionaires. Together, we will write a people’s platform and will chart a path of nationwide grassroots resistance. It will amplify the voices and spread the tactics of those who are already fighting back to defend their communities.
Bringing people from Washington State to Washington DC will not be cheap. We want to bring low-income workers, homeless activists and others. So we need to raise a lot of money--nationally we have a goal to raise $20,000 to subsidize registrations and pay for the costs of putting on this event.
Grassroots resisters around the country are on a fixed-income and facing devastating cuts to vital social services. Fundraising is an urgent need to help get them to D.C. in September.
Please give generously to help us bring people to the Congress of Resistance.
