Protestors are taking to the streets of Washington, DC on September 21 to make one thing extremely clear to the US government: they work for us. Learn more about the We The People March, and how you can let your voice be heard.
A projected 100,000 people are expected to gather in Washington, DC on September 21 with a key objective in mind: let the officials we elected into office know that they work for us, the people, and not for the president or corporate influencers. Learn more about the upcoming We The People March in the United States capitol, as well as the dozens of marches held around the world in solidarity, held one day after the Global Climate Strike. This is what democracy looks like!
1. The marchs mission statement is being left intentionally vague. “We the People are marching to be seen and heard. We are marching to remind our elected officials that they work for us. We are marching because the current regime is a threat to our democracy and values. We are marching to demand action. Silence and inaction are complicity,” reads the protests website.
“Trumps specialty is division. Its something hes really good at,” United Against Trump NOWs Ekata Castro wrote on Medium. The mission of this march says our diversity is our greatest strength. People arent attending because they want one thing (for example, impeachment). They are there for more than 100 good reasons. Their protest signs will reflect it. That alone is powerful.
2. But is NOT an anti-Donald Trump protest. We The People Marchs Dr. Karen McRae (The New Agenda president Amy Siskind is her march creator), said in a statement that, “this march is not an anti-Trump rally. Instead, we must gather in unity to remind our lawmakers they work for us—we ARE the people, and going forward will be relentless in our demand to ensure spectator citizenship never happens again!”
3. The main march is in DC, but there are dozens more planned worldwide: the DC march begins at 12:00pm ET on September 21. Protestors should begin arriving by 11:00am ET, and meet on Pennsylvania Avenue between 12th and 13th streets. Protests will then march through DC to Capitol Hill.
