#Earth2Trump Resistance Movement Arrives in D.C.
It's on. The Center for Biological Diversity's #Earth2Trump tour arrived in Washington, D.C., this week with resistance messages from more than 150,000 people around the country.
Our nationwide tour -- with roadshows in 16 cities from coast to coast -- drew more than 5,500 people over the past three weeks in the country's biggest, broadest grassroots organizing campaign focused on resisting Trump's attacks on the environment and civil rights. Every show -- from Seattle, Oakland and Los Angeles to Denver, Chicago and Houston -- was at capacity, including our biggest in St. Augustine, Fla., which drew more than 1,000 people.
Last night we had a big rally in D.C., where more than 250 people got to hear Congressman Jamie Raskin, Rev. Lennox Yearwood of the Hip Hop Caucus and Keya Chatterjee of the US Climate Action Network fire up the crowd and Kierán Suckling, the Center's executive director, lay out the Center's commitment to four years' of resistance, power and compassion.
Thanks to all who attended, our local partners who were essential at each stop, and those who supported us from afar. By building alliances and a unified movement, we're forming the only wall America needs: a firewall shielding the environment, endangered species, women's rights, equality and civil liberties from Trump and his corrupt system.
We've got a huge week planned. Read on for more details.
