Ukraine Testimony Spurs New Sign-Ups for ‘Nobody is Above the Law’ Actions Now Planned in 323 Cities

State rallies in support of impeachment grow after public hearings.
WASHINGTON -

As the U.S. House of Representatives drafts its report on its impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, more activists throughout the country are planning rallies in support of impeachment.

Actions for the “Nobody Is Above the Law” mobilizations are planned for more than 323 cities in 46 states and Washington, D.C. On the night before the House votes on whether to impeach Trump, hundreds of thousands of grassroots activists plan to rally in support of impeachment.

On the eve of the House vote, protesters will gather in front of the district offices of House members as the lawmakers finalize their positions and at U.S. Senate offices as senators prepare for a likely trial. Activists will call on lawmakers to uphold the U.S. Constitution and their oaths of office by supporting Trump’s impeachment.

We now know Trump pushed Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 elections, using U.S. military aid to pressure Ukraine officials to dig up dirt on Trump’s political opponent, and then engaged in a criminal cover-up. While Congress continues its work on health care, the economy and other important issues, it also needs to continue these impeachment proceedings, because nobody – especially Trump – is above the law.

Last week, EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland, a Trump appointee, testified that the president was aware of and directed a pay-to-play bribery scheme involving Ukraine. Trump solicited an official Ukraine investigation to benefit himself in exchange for official U.S. actions.

Americans from Los Angeles, Calif., to Beckley, W.Va., are ready to amplify the need to impeach, hold their representatives accountable and declare that not even the president is above the law.

Activists who want to get involved can RSVP for a “Nobody is Above the Law” event or participate in a town hall or rally in their district.

The Nobody Is Above the Law actions are organized by ACRONYM, act.tv, Action Group Network, Blue Future, By The People, Center for American Progress Action Fund, Center for Popular Democracy Action, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), Common Defense, CREDO Action, Daily Kos, Defend American Democracy, Demand Justice, DemCastUSA, Democracy 21, Democracy for America, Equal Justice Society, Florida LGBTQ+ Democratic Caucus, Free Speech for People, Georgia Alliance for Social Justice, Greenpeace, Impeachment March – Worldwide, Indivisible, Lewis-Clark 4 Democracy, Mainers for Accountable Leadership, March For Truth, MAYDAY America, MomsRising, Mountain Dems of Colorado, MoveOn.org, National Action Network, LGBTQ & Veteran’s Committee, National Organization of Women, Need To Impeach, NextGen America, OWS Special Projects Affinity Group, People For the American Way, People’s Action, Progressive Democrats of America, Progressive Turnout Project, Public Citizen, Resistbot, Service Employees International Union (SEIU), SOSAmerica2019, STAND Central New Jersey, Stand Up America, Strong Economy for All Coalition, United We Dream and Women’s March.

"We need to stop asking, 'How much does a bold Build Back Better agenda cost?' and instead ask, 'How much does it cost not to Build Back Better?'" said Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II.
