Millennial Activists call to Impeach Donald Trump
Dear Speaker Ryan and Chairman Goodlatte,
We, a coalition of civil rights leaders, faith leaders, scholars, and influencers call for the House Judiciary Committee to begin an investigation into the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump.
We are called to action because we are deeply disturbed by the moral crisis in America that has been engendered by voter suppression, institutionalized racism, political corruption, and the deification of the militarized state. President Donald Trump’s decisive rhetoric has enabled a culture of racism, sexism, misogyny, xenophobia, and white supremacy on full display in faith communities, colleges, universities, commercial airliners, political rallies, public parks, neighborhoods, and across the expanse of our national and international community.
We recognize our responsibility to challenge the moral failures of America and to inaugurate a radical revolution of values. In his speech “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence,” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said that a revolution of values requires an ecumenical loyalty to humankind, not things. A revolution of values requires us to work to enact The People’s Agenda which seeks to eradicate poverty by raising the minimum wage, rebuilding our national infrastructure, harnessing clean energy to power our cities, and massively training a new generation of entrepreneurs in the digital economy.
Finally, we are committed to engage in radical nonviolent direct action in order to “redeem the soul of this nation”. Through the embodiment of the principles of Kingian nonviolence, which harnesses the power of love and soul force, we will fight the evils of Trumpism, racism, and capitalism. Our embrace of this Kingian principle compels us to act now and begin a moral militant movement that activates people of conscience and goodwill across the nation and throughout the world.
