Voices of Earth2Trump
Our Roadshow of Resistance is about sending messages to D.C. — including yours
As the Earth2Trump Cross-Country Roadshow of Resistance rallies in 16 cities on its way to the presidential inauguration in D.C. on Jan. 20, we’re gathering personal pleas and pledges of resistance into hand-painted globes. They’re poignant, angry, insightful, defiant reflections of our national outlook and we wanted to share some of them here and through social media posts using #Earth2Trump.
At our launch event in Seattle, Femi, Alexandra and Linda Browne were three generations of women who added their personal pleas and pledges into the globe — and accepted our invitation to also read them from the stage, which proved to be a touching moment. We’ll be doing more of that in future events, so make sure to let someone from the Center know if you have a message that should be widely shared.
Femi (the youngest): “Trump, If you were a person of color, how would you feel? _Femi”
Alexandra (Femi’s mom): “I pledge to my great great great grandchildren to do everything I can to make Pachamama a healthy place, flourishing with national resources & clean water, along with social justice & cultural healing. We do not support Donald Trump.”
Linda (Femi’s grandmother): “You must be kidding! Please consider what it would be like if you were a woman.”
In Oakland, Luta Candelaria, — a Rumsen Ohlone and Mescalero Apache who recently returned from the Standing Rock Reservation and the standoff construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline — came out to send a message about protecting indigenous sovereignty.
Throughout the Earth2Trump tours, we’ll be recording and sharing the messages that people want to send. So bring your message to our events and keep checking here to read others. Or you can create your own message with the #Earth2Trump label and put it out on social media.
Here’s a sampling of the Voices of #Earth2Trump from each stop on the tour:
