Millions of us are deeply distressed and angered. But, people are held back by the fear they are alone and powerless.
Many hope that somehow the Democrats will do something to change this when every day it becomes more clear they will not.
From out of this huge reservoir of people, we can unleash a great wave, moving together on the same day – our numbers making a statement
that can not be ignored and that lets it be known that we are determined to bring this whole disastrous direction to a halt.

calling on millions more to join us in repudiating this criminal regime with the mobilization of massive political opposition!
