TODAY: 600 ‘Nobody is Above the Law’ Rallies to Impeach Trump
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Tuesday, December 17, 2019
NEW YORK — Today, Stand Up America joins dozens of progressive groups and grassroots organizations in organizing more than 600 “Nobody is Above the Law” rallies planned tonight on the eve of the House of Representatives’ vote to impeach Donald Trump.
Americans from across the country—including tens of thousands of activists from the Stand Up America community—will rally to demand that Trump be impeached and removed from office, with nearly 200,000 grassroots activists pledging to rally in support of impeachment at events in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
“These nationwide ‘Nobody Is Above the Law’ rallies will put a face to the majority of Americans that support impeachment and removal,” said Stand Up America Founder and President Sean Eldridge. “Tonight, those marching in the streets will send a clear message to Congress: Voters are watching, and we will remember who shows more loyalty to Donald Trump and the Republican Party than to the Constitution and their oath of office.”
Stand Up America has helped drive tens of thousands of RSVPs alongside partner organizations like Indivisible, MoveOn, Need to Impeach, Public Citizen, and numerous others. The organization has also helped rally celebrities to mobilize Americans from across the country to participate in the rallies, including:
- Don Cheadle
- Jon Cryer
- Julia Louis-Dreyfus
- Ava DuVernay
- Debra Messing
- Alyssa Milano
- Rosie O’Donnell
- Piper Perabo
- Wanda Sykes
- George Takei
- Amber Tamblyn
