This summer, the people of Puerto Rico and Hong Kong showed the world how to stand up to corrupt and undemocratic leaders. Unprecedented protests in Puerto Rico forced the resignation of the embattled governor within the span of two weeks. For months, the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong has drawn millions into the streets.
Meanwhile, a racist, liar, and cheat remains in the White House. What can we learn from these movements in the fight to impeach Trump?
On September 10 at 8:30pm ET / 5:30pm PT, we're teaming up with Impeachment University for a webinar called "Lessons in People Power" with activists from Hong Kong and Puerto Rico. These movement leaders will share lessons on how to use people power to strengthen democracy, transform what’s politically possible, and create lasting change.
As Trump incites racist violence, illegally separates families, and openly seeks to profit from the presidency, we the people are challenged to rise up and defend our democracy. It’s clear that Congress will not act to hold Trump accountable unless we make it a political necessity for them to do so. In this webinar, we’ll learn how Hong Kong and Puerto Rico have harnessed the power of protest to change everything — and how we can create that groundswell here.
