The nationwide demonstrations on Monday will be led by a large coalition of diverse advocacy groups representing millions of Americans, including Win Without War, CREDO Action, MoveOn.org, Public Citizen, United We Dream, and others.
"Our most pressing national emergency is that a racist autocrat occupies the White House," CREDO Action co-director Heidi Hess said in a statement. "The media and politicians should be perfectly clear about what this is: An unconstitutional power grab that threatens our democracy and escalates Trump's attacks on immigrants, communities of color, Muslims and black and brown people."
"There is already a mass mobilization happening against Trump's wall," added America's Voice. "Fifty thousand signed MoveOn petitions against the national emergency overnight, ten thousand made calls to Congress, thousands of people expected to hit the streets on Monday. This is a moment."
