Organizers Call for Hundreds of Thousands to Rally Nationwide Calling on Congress to Impeach and Remove Trump
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The evening before the U.S. House of Representatives votes on whether to impeach President Donald Trump, hundreds of thousands of grassroots activists nationwide are expected to take to the streets to declare that no American is above the law.
The actions are organized by the “Nobody Is Above the Law” coalition, which also organized protests in nearly 1,000 cities to support the protection of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election. Protesters will gather in front of the district offices of House members as the lawmakers finalize their positions and at U.S. Senate offices as senators prepare for a likely trial. Protesters will call on their representatives to uphold the Constitution and their oaths of office by supporting Trump’s impeachment.
The activists will coordinate their work using #notabovethelaw on social media and via the event hub hosted at impeach.org, where anyone can sign up to host or participate in an event.
This mobilization is part of a much larger grassroots effort to ensure Congress fulfills its duty to make sure the president follows the law, including nationwide actions and town halls during the November congressional recess to help amplify calls for an inquiry and impeachment. Additionally, tens of thousands of activists are calling Congress each week to ask Republican senators and representatives: “Do you believe that the president should be able to pressure a foreign government to interfere in our elections?”
We now know Trump pushed Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 elections, using U.S. military aid to pressure them to dig up dirt on a political opponent, and then engaged in a criminal cover-up. If the average American citizen did this or any other politician, they would go to jail. While Congress continues its work on health care, the economy and other important issues, it also needs to continue these impeachment proceedings, because nobody – especially Trump – is above the law.
Actions for the “Nobody Is Above the Law” mobilization already are already registered in more than 80 cities across the country, such as Columbus, Ohio; Sedona, Ariz; and Atlanta, Ga.
