 SPEAK-OUT TO END THE #TRUMPSHUTDOWN


Donald Trump and the GOP have driven us into a government shutdown. They have left kids without health care, #Dreamers in limbo, and are hurting countless federal employees—not to mention all of us who rely on federal services.

Democrats stood strong for CHIP and the Dream Act, demanding Republicans fix the crisis Trump created when he ended the popular DACA program. But Trump and the GOP refused to compromise. Now it's our turn to speak up at this pivotal moment and demand a government that works again.

Public pressure is absolutely critical to make sure senators see constituents demanding an end to the #TrumpShutdown by passing the Dream Act, funding CHIP, and agreeing to a plan that reflects the values of the American people.

Can you join this #TrumpShutdown speak-out?
 
  
A person holding a sign! YES, I'LL BE THERE! People holding signs!

Want to support our work? The MoveOn community will work every moment, day by day and year by year, to resist Trump's agenda, contain the damage, defeat hate with love, and begin the process of swinging the nation's pendulum back toward sanity, decency, and the kind of future that we must never give up on. And to do it we need your ongoing support, now more than ever. Will you stand with us?

Unbelievable, even for Trump

This is outrageous: Republicans have shut down the federal government in order to protect Donald Trump's racist, anti-immigrant agenda, at the expense of tens of millions of Americans.

Dear MoveOn member,

This is outrageous: Republicans have shut down the federal government in order to protect Donald Trump's racist, anti-immigrant agenda, at the expense of tens of millions of Americans.

This is the first time in American history that the federal government has been shut down when one party controls both chambers of Congress and the White House.1

To paraphrase Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, what a total "shitshow" this has become.2

Right now, hundreds of thousands of government employees are facing furloughs—a terrifying situation for those living paycheck to paycheck. And Dreamers—immigrants who made a home in America as children—are still living in fear that they could be deported at any moment.

This is a new low for the Republican Party, and we need to mobilize now to make this so politically painful for them that they will have no choice but to reopen the government and pass a clean Dream Act. And we'll make sure that voters don't forget what the Republicans have done, and that they pay a political price in the midterm elections this November.

We need to raise $100,000 in the next 24 hours to power the rapid-response campaign to confront this crisis. Will you chip in $3 now?

Yes, I'll chip in now to help hold the GOP accountable for this shutdown and force Republicans to end this needless crisis and reopen the government.

Republicans control both houses of Congress and should be held responsible for siding with Trump to shut down the government instead of saving Dreamers with the popular, bipartisan Dream Act. Remember, it was Trump's decision to unilaterally repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program; this crisis is of Trump's and Republicans' own making.

If Republicans were to put a clean Dream Act on the floor for a vote today, it would pass with bipartisan support, and the government could reopen.

Instead, they've wasted their time defending a president who is more interested in writing offensive Twitter rants and making racist demands than in supporting bipartisan solutions to keep our government open.

If the GOP had just done the right thing, for once, none of this would have happened.

Help raise $100,000 for our emergency, rapid-response fund, and together we'll pressure Republicans to reopen the government and end the Trump shutdown, and then we'll hold them accountable for shutting down the government at the polls this fall.

Click here to chip in $3 right now to our emergency #TrumpShutdown campaign.

We're going to work around the clock this weekend and every day until the government reopens. Here's what we're planning to do, if we get the funds we need:

  • Make sure that the public understands that this is a 100%-Trump-Republican shutdown, which will help us end the shutdown now and win back power this fall. We held a rally at the U.S. Capitol last night featuring Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Kamala Harris, Representative Luis Gutierrez, and other champions, and we're joining the Women's Marches around the country today and tomorrow with signs and banners that send a clear message about the #TrumpShutdown.
  • Run a national Ready to Resist organizing call on Sunday night to channel tens of thousands of members into action to pressure Republicans to get back to work, pass the Dream Act, and reopen the government.
  • Organize speak-outs around the country next week, so constituents can rally together at hundreds of local events to demand action from elected officials and drive local media coverage about the #TrumpShutdown.
  • Produce hard-hitting videos and social media content about what's at stake, who'll be hurt by this shutdown, and why and how the GOP needs to get back to work to end it.
  • Prepare to flood Congress with calls next week through texting, email alerts, and our new, cutting-edge automated-calling technology. As our data analyst Amy White said, "Using some data and a whole lot of math, we identify progressive-leaning voters in key districts with members of Congress who most need to hear from their constituents. Then, we make huge numbers of calls to alert those voters to what's happening and encourage them to get involved!" These calls cost money, but they're highly effective. And we need to scale them up.
  • Organize high-profile, media-grabbing actions that will tell the story of the shutdown and can energize members around the country.

This organizing will take significant resources that we weren't planning to spend. Which is why I need to ask you, Eddie: Will you chip in now to our emergency campaign now to hold Republicans accountable and end the #TrumpShutdown?

Yes, I'll chip in $3 now to the emergency shutdown campaign.

Republicans created this disaster, but they want to blame Democrats for the shutdown? Please.

Democrats acted in good faith and gave significant concessions to Republicans in an attempt to pass a spending bill that includes protections for Dreamers.

Republican Senator Jeff Flake said, "I can tell you I've been negotiating and working with the Democrats on immigration for 17 years and on this issue, on DACA or on the DREAM Act, for a number of years, and the Democrats are negotiating in good faith."3

This shutdown happened because of Trump and the Republicans. We need to make sure that the GOP is held accountable and suffers political consequences in the 2018 elections. Donate now to help us reach $100,000 in our emergency response fund to make Republicans get back to work, reopen the government, and, in November, pay for their government shutdown.

Yes, I'm in! I'll chip in $3 now to the emergency shutdown campaign.

Thanks for all you do.

Just answer the phone to connect to the call, or stream the call at moveon.org/ReadyToResist.

With news breaking late Friday night that Republicans have caused a government shutdown by refusing to protect nearly 800,000 Dreamers from deportations, it is more urgent than ever for our movement to come together to organize, fight back against the racist Republican agenda, and work hard to take back power in Washington later this year.

On this Sunday's call, we will discuss updates on the shutdown and what you can do next week to join Dreamers in action and hold Republicans accountable, and we will also give updates on MoveOn's Resist and Win election campaign and much, much more! (Take a look below for the email we sent earlier this week about the call.)

We'll be joined on the call by

  • Bob Bland, Linda Sarsour, and Nina Turner from the Women's March;
  • Nelini Stamp from the Working Families Party;

Dear MoveOn member,

One year ago, we hosted the inaugural “Ready to Resist” national organizing call, with the goal of providing resources for people around the country preparing to fight back against Donald Trump’s agenda.

We thought 1,000 people would attend (our original draft agenda even had that number written down as our goal!). Instead, over 60,000 people joined that first call the night after the inspirational Women's March—and helped to break a Guinness World Record! Hundreds of thousands have joined the 15 we have hosted since—learning everything from how to fight back against attacks on health care, to how to confront racism in our communities.

In honor of the one-year anniversary of Ready to Resist and celebrating the anniversary of the historic Women's March, we will be hosting our first call of 2018 this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET (7 CT/6 MT/5 PT) LIVE from the Women’s March “Power to the Polls” national voter registration tour kickoff in Las Vegas.

Click here to RSVP! (You'll register online, then receive a call at the number you provide shortly before Sunday's call begins—or you'll be able to listen online.)

On this Sunday’s call, we will …

  • Discuss the political state of play heading into the 2018 midterms with our Ready to Resist partners the Working Families Party, People's Action, and the Center for Popular Democracy.
  • Give an update on MoveOn’s Resist and Win election campaign, the tactics and tools we will use to help support hundreds of progressive candidates around the country, and how you can get involved.
  • Hear from representatives of the Women’s March who will share details about their Power to the Polls campaign, a national voter registration tour that will target swing states to register and engage voters and help elect women and progressives around the country.
  • And much, much more!

Click here to RSVP to this Sunday’s call!

2018 will be the most important test for our movement. At this moment, we are facing a major showdown over the DACA program, with the lives of nearly 800,000 young people hanging in the balance—and by Sunday we will know if we've secured the Dream Act, whether Democrats have stood their ground and demanded a deal, or even if Donald Trump and the Republicans in Congress have gone so far as to shut down the federal government to support Trump's aggressive deportation agenda.

It has never been more important for us to come together and fight back. This year, we have the chance to take back power in Washington, create a real firewall to stop Trump’s agenda, and hold elected officials around the country accountable for their actions. But we have a lot of work to do to get there.

And it won’t be possible without a massive, energized movement of people around the country organizing in their communities, raising their voices, and marching all the way to the polls. Will you join us?

Join a #TrumpShutdown action near you

Donald Trump just shut down the federal government—here's how we respond.

Dear MoveOn member,

Donald Trump and his GOP Congress just shut down the federal government.1

Our National Parks are closing down. 

9 million kids who depend on the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) still have their coverage unfunded.2

And 800,000 Dreamers are without the protections they were promised under DACA. 

All because Donald Trump and the GOP chose to shut down the government rather than give up their reckless and racist policies, including billions in funding for a border wall. 

Trump is tweeting up a storm to pass blame for his shutdown off onto Democrats because they stood strong for Dreamers and resisted his radical agenda. But we won't stand for it—and MoveOn members and our allies are going to show up at speak-out actions across the country this next week to demand that the GOP end the #TrumpShutdown and get back to work to pass the Dream Act and fund CHIP. 

Click here to host or join an urgent speak-out this week to demand Congress end the #TrumpShutdown and protect Dreamers—find and RSVP for an event near you, or start a new one! (If there isn't an event near you yet, hosting one is easy! MoveOn staff and volunteers will support you every step of the way and even recruit other MoveOn members and partners in your area.)

Yesterday marked exactly one year since Trump's inauguration—and one year of the resistance to Trump's administration. In the past year, so many of us have stepped up our civic engagement in ways we may never have expected. We've been vigilant in defending health care coverage, standing with communities bearing the brunt of Trump's attacks, and resisting the Trump agenda as we've mobilized to win key elections and lay the groundwork to rebuild progressive power. 

And we've had incredible impact! We've been able to defeat horrible Republican policies and support leadership from Democrats who have stood strong—even now, the fact that the Democrats are so united in their opposition to Trump's and the Republicans' cruel legislative games is a testament to the power of the Resistance, which has stiffened the spines of Democrats and showed we'll have their backs in a moment like this.

And now it's critical to make sure Republicans feel the pressure—to get back to work, pass Dream, fund CHIP, reopen the government, and reject Trump's racist agenda and reckless actions.

MoveOn and our allies are organizing a national wave of protests to end the #TrumpShutdown, beginning Monday and lasting through Wednesday (unless we can win before then!).

Can we count on you to join or host a speak-out event in your area to end the #TrumpShutdown?

Republicans have shut down the federal government before, and they suffered a political cost from holding our country hostage to their extreme agenda. If we all come together to stand up to this egregious negotiating tactic, we can win public opinion, help secure a deal that protects Dreamers, and emerge as a stronger country. It all starts with what we do next.  

Thanks for all you do. 

–Katharine, Elsie, Ben, Jackie, and the rest of the team

P.S.: One year ago, the day after the Women's March, MoveOn and our allies held the first Ready to Resist call—and broke the Guinness World Record for the largest conference call in history. Tonight, Sunday January 21, we're marking that anniversary with another Ready to Resist call, live from the Women's March in Las Vegas and featuring leaders of the Women's March, where we'll focus like a laser on urgent steps to stop the #TrumpShutdown. Click here to RSVP for the call tonight, Sunday, at 8 p.m. ET (7 CT/6 MT/5 PT).

Sign the petition: Palestine refugees need our help

Sign to support critical education, health care, social services, and emergency protection needs of refugees.

Dear MoveOn member,

On January 16, the U.S. government made the decision to freeze millions of dollars to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). This is an unprecedented and extremely dangerous decision that will cause untold additional trauma and harm to Palestine refugees who rely on UNRWA's services in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank (including East Jerusalem), Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria.1

Please sign my petition asking the Trump administration to continue supporting Palestine refugees in need.

The U.S. government just made the decision to freeze millions of dollars to support refugees and the UNRWA. I want my tax dollars to support this work to provide critical education, health care, social services, and emergency protection to refugees in need.

Since UNRWA began its operations in May 1950, every administration, from Truman onwards, has stood with and provided strong, generous, and committed support to the agency. This administration is the only one to make the destructive decision to cut such funding.

Through UNRWA's humanitarian and development work, it is unique in providing vital services that are akin to those normally provided through governments, and it does so directly through over 33,000 staff, most of whom are Palestine refugees themselves.

As a neutral and impartial UN agency, it

•educates 525,000 girls and boys in 700 UNRWA schools, including education on human rights, conflict resolution, and tolerance;
•operates more than 140 health centers and delivers comprehensive primary health-care services, handling more than 9 million patient visits per year;
•provides cash assistance and shelter rehabilitation to help refugees meet their basic human needs of food, shelter, and environmental health to achieve a decent standard of living and improve infrastructure and living conditions in the 58 recognized Palestine refugee camps; and
•provides emergency humanitarian assistance through life-saving cash, food, and shelter support in Gaza and Syria.2

I implore the White House to reconsider this decision, as it is against our American principles, global security and safety, and common human interest. In line with the democratic and humanitarian values this country was founded on and stands for, the U.S. government's investment in UNRWA's work must be sustained, as it affects not only the lives of the over 5 million Palestine refugees the organization serves but the future and stability of the Middle East and beyond.

Click here to add your name to this petition to help refugees, and please pass it along to your friends.

Thanks!

Sign the petition: Allow Jorge Garcia to return to his family

Will you sign and share my petition calling on Congress to allow Jorge Garcia to return to his family in Michigan? Click here to sign.

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

Jorge Garcia—a Michigan man who had lived in the U.S. for 30 years since he was 10 years old—has a story like so many immigrant stories: one filled with hard work, strong ties to his community, and love for his family. He has cooperated with the government, paid taxes, and has no criminal record. 

Yet, another tragic story is unfolding. On Martin Luther King Day, ICE agents escorted Jorge onto a plane bound for a country he barely knows, away from his wife and two children—who are all U.S. citizens.1

Will you sign and share my petition calling on Congress to stop separating families and demand Jorge Garcia be returned to his family in Michigan? Click here to sign.

Stop separating families! Allow Jorge Garcia to return to his family in Michigan and pass the Dream Act now.

We have been hearing stories like Jorge's over and over again.

This must stop. When immigrants arrive as children, attend our schools, and grow up as Americans, they should be allowed, when adults, to make the decision to stay or return. It should be their choice! This is a humanitarian issue.

Last week, a group of senators reached a bipartisan deal to pass the Dream Act, which may have protected Jorge from deportation. But Donald Trump rejected that deal, pushing our government closer to a shutdown as our members of Congress are forced to decide if they will fall in line with Trump's racist policies or support for immigrant youth.2

It's more important than ever that we speak up and demand that Congress keep families together and pass a clean Dream Act now.

Thanks!

Want to support our work? The MoveOn community will work every moment, day by day and year by year, to resist Trump's agenda, contain the damage, defeat hate with love, and begin the process of swinging the nation's pendulum back toward sanity, decency, and the kind of future that we must never give up on. And to do it we need your ongoing support, now more than ever. Will you stand with us?

Yes, I'll chip in $5 a month.
