Here is one campaign that we will be joining. In from the National Day Laborer Organizing Network.
Just yesterday, I sent a message about the important work that lies ahead for us. Many of you responded positively, asking how you can get involved. We listened and we have important news to share with you.
We are excited to announce the newly launched campaign website titled AltoTrump.com.
This website, like AltoArizona.com, NoPapersNoFear.org and NotOneMoreDeportation.com before, will serve as a hub of organizing information for visitors to get informed, download resources, ask questions, and, most importantly, to learn how to get involved locally, statewide, and nationally in campaigns of resistance against Trump’s policies and ideology of hatred, bigotry, xenophobia and racism. The website/campaign will continue to develop and grow rapidly in the coming days and weeks. Please follow us for updates.
We really need your support right now to donate to strengthen our capacity to do the on-the-ground organizing work.
CAN YOU DONATE TODAY to help organize our communities?
This is a national effort and we’re prepared to exert all of our capacity, with you, to defeat hatred and Trump’s extremist policies.
Here is a description of the campaign’s mission statement:
Our communities are under attack. The President-elect is an openly racist, nativist demagogue who climbed to victory by stoking fear and hatred of immigrants. This is not the first time we have confronted forces like this. We have faced down Minutemen and vigilantes; dismantled state laws designed to make our lives so miserable we would “self-deport;” defeated racist sheriffs; and disarmed ICE’s deportation dragnet. But the scale and power of challenge we now face cannot be underestimated. We can meet it only if we match the fear that confronts us with the courage we have learned from our struggles, only if we meet the hate that would destroy us with the love that ties us to our families and communities, and—most importantly—only if we stand together, and organize.
Thanks for your solidarity and we’ll see you online and on the ground everywhere, across the country.

Like our previous campaigns, Art & Culture are key in the fight against intolerance and injustice. We will soon announce a call for submission of artwork to support the campaign. Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and, of course, bookmark AltoTrump.com to see the submissions as they arrive.
