Resist Trump Tuesday--#DefundHate

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

LEARN HOW YOU CAN HELP DEFUND HATE

Come join Seattle Indivisible at our #DefundHate rally. The #DefundHate campaign seeks to pressure Congress during its September appropriations process to defund the agencies and systems being used by the Trump administration to carry out violence against our immigrant community. From caging children, families and adults at the border, to launching raids that rip people away from homes where they’ve lived years or even decades, to attempting to illegally block asylum, it’s clear that the Trump administration has focused its resources on maximizing harm to immigrant communities. Congress must fight the atrocities Trump is committing at the Southern border and throughout this country by cutting funding for the agencies being used to carry out these abuses-- Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Defunding ICE and CBP, and implementing safeguards to prevent Trump from stealing funds for these agencies from hurricane relief and other emergency resources, is the best route to blocking the implementation of Trump’s horrifying anti-immigrant agenda. Come Tuesday and learn the best tactics to pressure Congress to #DefundHate.

Immediately following our 11:45AM rally, as we regularly do on Resist Trump Tuesday, we will be meeting with Senator Murray’s and Senator Cantwell’s staff from 12:30-1:30PM to let them know how we want them to DefundHate and for a Q&A session on whatever topic you want to raise with your senators.

Seattle Indivisible hosts Resist Trump Tuesday informative rallies with live music at the Seattle Federal Building on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month, immediately followed by meetings with senate staff on the 2nd Tuesday and with House member staff on the 4th Tuesday. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend—please join us, we need your voice!
