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
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.
1900 Nicollet Ave S, Minneapolis, MN
3 pm - 6 pm
This march will join up with the mega-march. There will be hot chocolate. #NoDAPL #ResistCulturalGenocide
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.
Ginger Hop, 201 E Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55414
10 pm - 2 am
The night of the inauguration, join NOC and community for a night of music, dancing, and joyful resistance. As we prepare for the next four years, we refuse to surrender our joy -- we embrace it as an act of love and resistance. Join us for music, dancing, and community. We'll also have info about our Resist. Revolt. Unite. campaign and how you can join the movement.
