Digital Director

Location: New York, NY

Stand Up America is a political advocacy organization focused on digital mobilization to resist Trump’s corrupt agenda, advance progressive values, and strengthen our democracy.

Founded after the 2016 election, 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’ve driven over 650,000 calls to Congress and mobilized more than 50,000 protestors to demand our representatives oppose Trump’s corrupt agenda. In the 2018 midterms, we recruited thousands of volunteers for progressive House races across the country, registered over 10,000 voters, and sent more than 600,000 peer- to-peer text messages to help get out the vote.

Now we’re focused on holding Trump accountable for his corruption and crimes, and we’re fighting for bold legislative reforms that will strengthen our democracy at the state and national level by increasing voter participation and reducing the influence of money in our elections.

DEMAND AN INQUIRY!

Trump broke the law. Mueller’s investigation found 140+ ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government and at least 10 episodes of obstruction of justice, from trying to stop the investigation by firing FBI Director Comey to ordering his aides to lie about his attempts to fire Mueller. Mueller left it up to Congress to hold Trump accountable. It’s time for Congress to stand up for our democracy by opening an impeachment inquiry.
