What we do — and why we do it:

Stand Up America began in the weeks after the 2016 election, when hundreds of thousands of concerned Americans came together online to organize and resist Trump’s dangerous agenda. Our community has quickly grown to over two million Americans, across all 50 states, who are taking action and making their voices heard daily.

We’re focused on strengthening our democracy across the country, standing up to Trump’s corruption, and supporting the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry into his criminal conduct.

The Stand Up America team is here to provide you with the information and resources you need to take meaningful action. Whether it’s an upcoming protest or calling your lawmaker about urgent legislation, we’ll keep you informed about how you can most effectively use your voice to protect our democracy and resist the dangerous and misguided policies of the current administration. Sign up here to receive regular communications from us.

The fights ahead won’t be easy, but we’re proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with you.


Stand Up America: By the Numbers

Hundreds of thousands of people in the Stand Up America community have contacted their member of Congress or state legislator by phone, fax, email, and social media to resist Trump’s dangerous agenda, stand up to his administration’s corruption, and strengthen our democracy across the country.


Our Past Work

The New York TRUST Act

In 2019, we fought for the successful passage of the TRUST Act: a historic bill that allows Congress to request up to 6 years of Trump’s state tax returns from the State of New York. This legislation gives Congress the ability to access more of Trump’s tax information than ever before. This is a huge step towards transparency for the American people and exposing Trump’s conflicts of interest and foreign entanglements.

AVR and Fair Elections in New York

We’ve helped lead the fight to increase voter participation and decrease the influence of big money in New York State. We drove thousands of calls in support of automatic voter registration, which could add over 1 million new voters to the rolls, and a small-dollar matching system, which would elevate the voices of working families. Both issues are still under consideration in New York, and Stand Up America community members will continue to make their voices heard in the fight to strengthen our democracy. 

Opposing Trump’s Fake National Emergency at the Border

We drove tens of thousands of calls to oppose Trump’s fake national emergency, which he declared in early 2019 so that he could divert billions of dollars to build a wall along the southern border without Congressional approval. We were one of the loudest voices supporting a bipartisan bill to prevent Trump from using tax dollars to pursue this racist and xenophobic policy. Trump vetoed the legislation, so this fight is now playing out in the courts — with multiple legal challenges brought against Trump’s “national emergency” — and we will continue to stand firm in opposing this affront to our democracy.

Trump-Russia Investigation

We partnered with a coalition of organizations to ensure Mueller’s investigation was protected as he closed in on the truth and delivered indictments to members of Trump’s inner circle. We’ve made over 150,000 calls to Congress and mobilized 100,000+ protesters in cities across America in pursuit of the truth — and continue to protect the ongoing investigations that have stemmed from Mueller’s probe.

Health Care

The fight to protect the Affordable Care Act proved that when we stand together, we can defeat Trump’s agenda. The Stand Up America community spoke out and worked hard to help defeat Trumpcare — protecting health care for millions and making it clear that the Affordable Care Act is here to stay.

Tax Fight

In 2017, the Stand Up America community called Congress more than 50,000 times to oppose Trump’s tax scam and fight for an economy that works for all Americans, not just the wealthy few.

The 2018 Midterm Elections

The midterm elections were a HUGE win for our progressive agenda. Our community played a decisive role in helping to elect progressives across the country. Together, we pledged 13,012 volunteer shifts to progressive candidates, helped 14,469 Americans register to vote, and texted 607,502 voters to help get out the vote!

SCOTUS

The Stand Up America community showed up in full-force to oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. We made nearly 60,000 calls in opposition to Kavanaugh, mobilized protesters across the country, and shared gut-wrenching personal stories. It wasn’t enough to stop Republicans hell-bent on confirming him, but it mattered. Our voices were heard.

Gun Control

Enough is enough. We’ve worked with partners like Everytown, March for Our Lives, and Guns Down to prevent gun violence in America. We’ve called, marched, and demanded action. Gun violence is an epidemic in need of a comprehensive solution, and our work has moved us closer than ever to solutions that will save lives.

DEMAND IMPEACHMENT!

Trump broke the law. The Mueller report exposed an enormous amount of criminal activity, including 10 episodes of Trump obstructing justice. Trump continues to flout the Constitution by illegally using his elected office to enrich himself with foreign government spending and our tax dollars. If anyone else engaged in even a fraction of this criminal behavior, they’d be headed to prison. We need every representative to stand up for our democracy and publicly support the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump.
