  • STAND AGAINST TRUMP
    Protest on Inauguration Day Against War, Racism and Inequality
    Defend immigrants and build workers' unity!

    Progressive people from all over the country will be descending on Washington, D.C. on January 20, 2017 to stage a massive demonstration along Pennsylvania Avenue on Inauguration Day.

    It is critically important that we keep building a larger grassroots movement against war, militarism, racism, anti-immigrant scapegoating and neoliberal capitalism’s assault against workers’ living standards and the environment.

    Real social change comes from the bottom, the mobilized grassroots, and not from the centers of institutional power, the professional politicians or the capitalist elites. 

    This country needs a real political revolution. Millions of people feel entirely disenfranchised by a political system that delivered the least favorable and trusted candidates in U.S. history. Many hoped that the Bernie Sanders campaign would represent a new direction and opportunity to take on entrenched power and extreme inequality, for a higher minimum wage, to defend Social Security, rebuild the labor movement, provide universal health care and free tuition.

    That campaign was largely suppressed, but its end does not change the desires and aspirations of tens of millions of people, workers and youth in particular, who are demanding real change. On Inauguration Day, thousands will be in the streets to give voice to the millions of people in this country who are demanding systemic change.

    Donald Trump is a racist, sexist bigot. We believe that tens of thousands of progressive people will be in the streets on Inauguration Day and in the weeks and months afterward.

    How one voted on election day is one thing, but even more important is whether we succeed in building a mass movement that can truly change the country, and the world. 

    Waiting for the same politicians who led to the rise of Trump to now stop him is a lost cause.

    Join us on January 20, 2017 for a massive mobilization of the people — RSVP, Endorse, and get Transportation Information for the event here!

    • Friday, January 20, 2017 at 08:00 AM
    • Dupont Circle in Washington, DC

    You are cordially invited to join DCMJ for the inaugural #Trump420 taking place on January 20, 2017 in Washington, DC!

    We will gather on the west side of Dupont Circle at 8am for coffee & tea and parade down to the National Mall at 10am. Along the way we'll hand out 4,200 joints of legally grown cannabis! At 4 minutes and 20 seconds into President Trump's speech we'll light up! (unless President Trump comes out now in support of full cannabis legalization in all 50 States and DC!)

    We legalized cannabis in Washington, DC and we are not going to let anyone take that away from us! This is an outreach opportunity to show President Trump's supporters we are the marijuana majority! Join us for smokin' fun time!

    ==============================================
    IMPORTANT INFORMATION

    • Bring your ID! If you look under 25, you will likely be carded by a volunteer. Only adults 21 or older can possess cannabis in Washington, DC.

    • There will be upwards of 50 different people distributing cannabis, not just one person. Do not carry more than 2 ounces of cannabis on you or you risk arrest!

    • If you have cannabis that you have grown, please roll it up into joints and bring it! You can tell people the strain, growing medium, etc.

    • This is 100% volunteer event. Please sign up to help out athttp://DCMJ.org/Trump420/

    • Absolutely no money should change hands. It is illegal in DC to accept any form of money for cannabis, even a donation. You can read Initiative 71 here: http://dcmj.org/ballot-initiative/

    • The consumption of cannabis (aka smoking) is illegal in public. Those who choose to consume cannabis are engaging non-violent civil disobedience and may be arrested.

    • Possession of cannabis on federal land (like the National Mall) is illegal. Those who choose to possess cannabis on federal land are engaging non-violent civil disobedience and may be arrested.

    • This event is not a party but a demonstration. We hope to demonstrate that Trump has the power to fully legalize cannabis throughout America!

    • Dress warm! Bring hand & foot warmers. The Inauguration in Washington, DC often takes place when temperatures are below freezing!

    • The nearest Metro station is Dupont Circle (Red Line). If you are coming from out of town, it is easier to park outside of DC and take Metro into the city. Trying to find parking on January 20 will be difficult. More Metro info is at: http://www.wmata.com/

    More updates will be added closer to the event!

  • Student Walkout on Trump's Inauguration - Berkeley

    • Friday, January 20, 2017 at 12:00 PM
    • Sproul Plaza in Berkeley, CA

    NATIONAL STUDENT WALKOUT AGAINST BIGOTRY & HATE
    Donald Trump and the Republican Party are preparing to unleash a storm of attacks on women, immigrants, the Muslim community, LGBTQ people, workers, and the environment. We must stand together in solidarity against Trump’s attempts to divide us! 


    A huge national student strike will send a clear message to Trump, the billionaire class, and the Republican Party that we reject their agenda of bigotry, hate, and division; that we reject their corporate policies to gut our social services and education. 


    Already we have seen the beginning of a mass fightback against Trump, with hundreds of thousands pouring into the streets after the election. But we can’t stop there, more will be needed to stand up and fight back against the onslaught of right-wing hate and corporate greed. 


    It’s clear we cannot rely on the political establishment or corporate politicians to fight Trump - it’s on us. That’s why high school and college students across the country are walking out of class on January 20th, Trump’s inauguration day, to demand with one united voice:


    - No deportations of undocumented immigrants!
    - Black Lives Matter! End police brutality and mass incarceration! 
    - Unite against Islamophobia!
    - Fight Trump’s sexism! Defend and extend reproductive rights!
    - Tax the rich! Make college free & cancel student debt!
    - Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline -- Green jobs now! -- #NoDAPL
    - Fight discrimination and violence against the LGBTQ community!

  • Women's March on Washington - Pennsylvania Chapter

    On January 21, 2017 we will unite in Washington, DC for the Women’s March on Washington. We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.

    The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us--women, immigrants of all statuses, those with diverse religious faiths particularly Muslim, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native and Indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, the economically impoverished and survivors of sexual assault. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.

    In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.

    We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all. HEAR OUR VOICE.
