Inaugurate the Resistance

As we brace for Trump's inauguration later this week, millions of people nationwide are preparing to begin a new chapter of resistance. Join us for a mass show of solidarity as we show that we will resist Trump's racist, misogynist, xenophobic and environmentally destructive policies every step of the way. Join us as we inaugurate the joyful resistance.

Here are some Twin Cities actions we'll be participating in today and tomorrow:

Thursday, January 19

Protect Our Students & Our Schools Rally and March

LEAP High School, 631 Albert St N, St. Paul, MN 55104

3:45 pm - 6 pm
On January 19th, right before Inauguration Day, we will stand up with the St. Paul Federation of Teachers as educators, students, and community members with our allies across the country to protect our students and our public schools. Join us for a rally and a march to demand the city of Saint Paul and Saint Paul Public Schools loudly and clearly proclaim themselves sanctuaries for our students and their families and commit to funding our public schools.


Friday, January 20
The Quarry, 1520 New Brighton Blvd, Minneapolis, MN 55413
5:30 am - 8 am
On January 20, Donald Trump’s Inauguration Day, janitors who clean Home Depot stores in the Twin Cities organizing with CTUL will go on strike against their cleaning contractor to protest their poverty wages and Donald Trump’s anti-worker agenda – the first strike against Donald Trump in the country since his election.

The two founders of Home Depot have donated millions of dollars to Trump and one of Home Depot’s major investors supports Trump. Home Depot uses the Trump model of business for its janitorial services: using subcontractors that hire immigrant workers and sometimes face lawsuits for wage theft.

Janitors who clean Home Depot are paid poverty wages by their subcontractor and have been organizing for years to win fair wages and the right to form a union without retaliation. If Trump has his way, these worker’s wages will go even lower – as Trump told the country in November 2016, “wages are too high.”

You can stand with striking janitors at 5:30am at The Quarry, 1520 New Brighton Blvd, Minneapolis, MN 55413.


Lake Street and Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis, MN
2 pm - 6 pm
 Join us and a dozen other organizations for a march through Minneapolis. Donald Trump and the GOP are preparing to unleash a storm of attacks on women, immigrants, the Muslim community, LGBTQ people, workers, and the environment. It’s clear we cannot rely on the Democratic Party establishment to fight Trump’s agenda – it’s on us. Join us on Inauguration Day to send a clear message to Trump, the GOP and the billionaire class.



Water Is Life -- Resist Cultural Genocide -- Native Lives Matter

1900 Nicollet Ave S, Minneapolis, MN

This march will join up with the mega-march. There will be hot chocolate. #NoDAPL #ResistCulturalGenocide

After the daytime events on Inauguration Day, come join community members and organizations from all around the Twin Cities as we gather to recognize and explore the incredible strength, resourcefulness, creativity, and resilience of a connected, collaborative community.  

There'll be music, powerful stories, community resources, and opportunities to learn and become connected with initiatives that will help support a more fair, just and sustainable life for all.
