Denver PDA Chapter Urges Other PDA Chapters and Other Progressives Join #BOYCOTTSOTU
From Donna Smith & Susan Gilbert
The Progressive Democrats of America Denver chapter and the Levi for Colorado Campaign of Colorado’s 6th Congressional District call on all progressives to boycott watching or listening to the Trump State of the Union address on January 30, 2018. Donald Trump has run roughshod over the institutions and norms that allow our democracy to function. His reckless behavior, efforts to obstruct the special counsel Robert Mueller and persecution of immigrants and refugees are profoundly offensive to America’s sense of both justice and common decency. Additionally, his lies are so numerous that any comments he might offer would undoubtedly be filled with untruths and outright misinformation. We will not dignify this farce.
In addition to refusing to watch or listen to the Trump remarks tomorrow evening, we call on Democrats to amplify their current plans for protest. In addition to wearing black to the SOTU, we call on them to rise and exit the chamber as Trump begins to speak.
Here’s a petition to sign and share: CLICK HERE.
And then make sure to share. We can stand together.
We stand in solidarity with all those who still believe we cannot and must not abandon our core American values of equality and justice for all. History will not look kindly on those who have enabled Donald Trump. #BOYCOTTSOTU
