Join us​ tomorrow​ for The People’s Address: A Cacerolazo 7:30pm ET

Let’s make some ​glorious noise and tell Congress what we really think about the ​trump administration!

It’s been over a month since ​t​rump took office. We have seen blatant attacks on our communities, a new administration that has no respect or value for basic human dignities and a President who is so corrupt there have been multiple calls for investigation. From the Muslim ban to ICE Raids and this week with Trump telling schools to ignore the law that protects trans kids in school we say enough is enough!

On Tuesday, President 45 will address a joint session of Congress for the first time. Don’t watch it and join us instead:

The People’s Address: A Cacerolazo
Tuesday, February 28 at 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
United States Capitol
Independence Ave SE & First St SE
Washington, DC 20515

We invite you to a Cacerolazo (casserole): a form of protest that consists of a group of people making noise by banging pots, pans, and utensils that is popular in Latin American countries. Join us as we drown out Trump and elevate the voices of immigrants, Muslims and members of the LGBTQ community.

We will gather at Independence Ave SE & First St SE. Instead of watching a speech that will undermine our communities, we will have the People’s Address.

So join us in celebrating the beauty of immigration and resistance! Bring your pots, pans, utensils, and your family and friends to the protest!

Let’s make sure Trump and his Klan members know our communities are #Heretostay!

P.S. If you are not in DC we want you to have a Cacerolazo in your city or town using #ResistTrumpTuesdays #PeoplesAddress #HereToStay. And put it up on our site:

UPDATE: Showing Up for Racial Justice – SURJ – DC will hold a 30-minute pre-action training for White folks on showing up with accountability and commitment to actions organized and led by people of color, with a focus on immigrant-led actions. Please meet Surj facilitators by 7 pm at Independence Ave SE & First St SE, Washington, DC.

The training will be a space to talk through do’s and don’ts, ask questions, and help build a community of protest and resistance.
