REMINDER: Resist Trump Tuesday TODAY featuring WA Solicitor General Noah Purcell

Please come to a special Resist Trump Tuesday rally today, where we will have a special guest speaker, Washington State Solicitor General Noah Purcell. As Solicitor General, Mr. Purcell successfully argued against Trump's first Muslim Ban in court. This is such an important topic that, even if you are not able to attend, help us get the word out by sharing this information with family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and other contacts. If you cannot make it to this rally, please watch the livestream on our Facebook page.

At this week’s Resist Trump Tuesday, we will discuss Trump’s abuse of presidential emergency powers. In just the past 6 months, Trump has created fake “emergencies” to grab power from Congress to:

- Deploy our military to the Mexican border

- Redirect funding from real emergencies to a border wall

- Sell arms to Saudi Arabia

- Threaten Mexico with tariffs

This unfettered abuse of emergency power threatens our democracy and endangers the globe. Come learn more about it, and how you can help stop this rise of authoritarianism.

We will rally at the Seattle Federal Building on Tuesday, June 11 from 11:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m., immediately followed by a meeting with Senator Murray’s and Senator Cantwell’s staff from 12:30-1:30 p.m. All are welcome.

Come join us. We need your voice!
