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!
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
