DemDaily: Resistance Summer Kicks Off!

June 1, 2017

This weekend kicks off Resistance Summer, the Democratic National Committee's (DNC) campaign to unite Americans in the name of resistance against an administration that seeks to divide its people - and to elect leaders who will prioritize the needs of middle class and working families.

The mission of Resistance Summer is to "educate, organize, and mobilize grassroots energy from Democrats in all 57 states, territories, and Democrats Abroad to help build our party's base of political power and resist Trump's attacks on hardworking families."

The Campaign Starts Now!

  Key Dates

  June 3rd, Saturday: State parties and allied groups will hold events across the country to kick off Resistance Summer.

4:30 p.m. EDT: Livestream Video with Leaders

  June 14th -17th: The DNC will hold a national training summit in Detroit, Michigan to train hundreds of organizers and fellows.

 

The name plays on the historic "Freedom Summer" of 1964, a turning point in the civil rights movement when thousands of volunteers in Mississippi participated in a campaign to register black voters and set up programs to end the political disenfranchisement of African Americans in the Deep South.
