#ImpeachTrump Day of Action Announced Because "It Is Clear That Congress Won't Act Unless We Demand It"

Because “the moral clarion call to pursue impeachment is clear,” progressive advocacy groups announced on Friday a national day of action to push Congress to hold President Donald Trump accountable.

With events across the country set for June 15—over 100 are already mapped out—lead organizers MoveOn and By the People say they intend to show and grow public support for the House starting an impeachment inquiry.

“Donald Trump has broken the law, violated the constitution, and put the safety and future of the American people at risk,” said Alexandra Flores-Quilty, a spokesperson with By the People. “But by now, it is clear that Congress won’t act unless we demand it.”

“We need to take to the streets in every neighborhood in America to defend democracy,” she continued. “Join us on June 15 across the country—from the biggest cities to the smallest towns—as we make the urgent call for Congress to act and begin an impeachment inquiry now.”

The nationwide events will take different forms, with some featuring public readings of impeachment calls from lawmakers like Rep. Rashida Tlaib. The Michigan Democrat will also speak in person at the June 15 event in Detroit, according to organizers. 

Other groups supporting the day of action include Indivisible, the Courage Campaign, and CREDO Action.
