SUA Has Driven Over 160K Constituent Calls to Congress Calling for the Swift Impeachment of Donald Trump

NEW YORK — In less than 24 hours, Stand Up America connected over 29,000 constituents via phone to their representative in Congress demanding the swift impeachment of Donald Trump for his high crimes and misdemeanors.

Yesterday’s call-in day was the largest in Stand Up America’s history, with constituents from every congressional district in the country calling lawmakers to demand that Congress immediately draft articles of impeachment and vote to impeach Trump this fall.

“We’re seeing unprecedented grassroots pressure to hold Trump accountable for using military aid to pressure Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 election,” said Stand Up America Founder and President Sean Eldridge. “No one is above the law in the United States of America, and none of us can remain silent in this historic moment—including our lawmakers.”

If you would like to schedule an interview with Sean Eldridge to discuss Stand Up America’s work on impeachment or the latest news, please email Ryan Thomas at [email protected].

About Stand Up America

Stand Up America is a progressive advocacy organization with over two million community members across the country. Focused on grassroots advocacy to strengthen our democracy and oppose Trump’s corrupt agenda, Stand Up America has driven over 850,000 phone calls to lawmakers and mobilized tens of thousands of protestors across the country.

In May 2019, Stand Up America launched a nationwide campaign demanding that Congress begin a formal impeachment inquiry, which included driving over 160,000 constituent calls to representatives from every congressional district in the country, a volunteer-driven peer-to-peer texting program that contacted 280,000 constituents in over 70 congressional districts, and other innovative digital organizing tactics.

In August 2019, Stand Up America also joined several partner organizations in launching ‘Impeachment August,’ a grassroots campaign that helped pressure dozens of lawmakers into supporting an impeachment inquiry and eventually pressure the House Judiciary Committee to formalize its inquiry.
