The mobilization is part of a grassroots effort to ask that Congress holds the President accountable for using military aid to pressure Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 elections. Protestors will demand that the House of Representatives fulfills its constitutional duty by impeaching Donald Trump and that the Senate remove him from office for attempting to rig the 2020 elections.

The rallies are sponsored by a coalition of over 50 national groups including MoveOn, Indivisible, By the People, Women’s March, Common Cause, SEIU, and NAACP.

Activists will use #NotAboveTheLaw and #ImpeachmentEve to engage communities on social media. Information about other events can be found at Impeach.org.
