Resist Trump Tuesday--Trump's Abuse of Emergency Powers

  • Henry M. Jackson Federal Building 915 2nd Avenue Seattle, WA, 98174 United States (map)

RESIST TRUMP TUESDAY FOCUSES ON TRUMP’S ABUSE OF PRESIDENTIAL EMERGENCY POWER

Join us for this week’s Resist Trump Tuesday where 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 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 rally at the Seattle Federal Building from 11:45am-12:30pm, immediately followed by a meeting with Senator Murray’s and Senator Cantwell’s staff from 12:30-1:30pm. All are welcome.

Come join us. We need your voice!
