This fall Millennials started taking nonviolent direct action to disrupt the racism, xenophobia, and misogyny of GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump, while also calling out the Republican Party for its decades-long use of racist “dog whistles” to divide the American people.
Under the banner of #AllofUs, the group is pushing a three-part plan for the homestretch of the 2016 election, and then beyond. From their website:
1. REJECT TRUMP’S RACISM
#AllofUs will force Republican leaders to choose: will they reject Donald Trump and the 50-years of dog-whistle racism that led to him, or will they keep encouraging Americans to hate each other? #TrumpVsAllofUs
2. VOTE WITH #ALLOFUS2016
#AllofUs will vote to defeat Donald Trump, because we can’t risk letting a hate-filled billionaire become President. Hillary Clinton won’t solve the problems of our generation, but she’s the only one who can stop Trump. On election day, thousands of young people will take action together to express that our generation is committed to taking control of our democracy from the ruling class and creating an America that isn’t divided by racism and inequality.
3. FIGHT WALL STREET DEMOCRATS
#AllofUs will put Wall Street Democrats on notice: if you side with the racism and greed of the ruling class, we will support primary challengers against you in the future. #AllofUs will make sure Hillary’s transition team doesn’t include Wall Street insiders or corporate cronies.
The group has organized several actions targeting the RNC headquarters, Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan, and GOP nominee Donald Trump (at Trump Towers).
Beyond the Choir starting working with #AllofUs earlier this year to provide support and training in narrative strategy and political alignment frameworks. We share the burgeoning campaign’s goals and are proud to count #AllofUs among our partners.
