Are you ready? We’re changing the rules for building power. We’re no longer following the pretense of civility for civility’s sake. We’re building an Opposition that’s bigger than a chanting crowd, stronger than Donald Trump’s iron fist, and more strategic than our winning tactics of the past. And we need you to be apart of this movement to take back our country and resist Trump every step of the way.
Starting at noon, our rights as Americans go up for sale. Our country will be led by a President who will sell off this country and the progress we’ve achieved just to make more money for himself, his family, and his white supremacist and billionaire friends.
But, we are not defeated. We know the majority of Americans believe in values of justice and equity. And we’re ready to hold anyone accountable who is a traitor to those values-- we’re leading the Opposition. That includes any executive who helps build Trump’s Muslim registry, any Senator who confirms Trump's parade of unqualified and dangerous Cabinet appointees, and any Democratic leader who won’t show they have a strong backbone to stand up for our core rights and freedoms as Americans. And the Opposition isn’t just made up of the staff at our organization.
It’s everyone who cares about justice and equity--the Opposition is made up of people like you. That’s why we’re reaching out to you to help us continue the important work of holding the line against Donald Trump and his cabinet of corrupt politicians and CEOs without conscience.
For the past eleven years, we’ve weakened right-wing lobbyists like ALEC, taken on corruption in Silicon Valley, and cancelled television shows that propagated racist misinformation like the “Glenn Beck Show.” But now, we’re entering a new era which requires a new strategy. And we have one: we’re doing everything we can to halt harmful initiatives like the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, ensure that Democratic leadership is accountable to our movement constituencies, and safeguard the social safety net that protects our families, elders, and children.
Starting today, there are no sidelines. There will be no hostage negotiations or concessions for our most basic rights and freedoms. They’re either with us--ready to protect the majority of Americans, or they’re against us.
Until justice is real,
Rashad and the Color Of Change team
