Tucson Sit In for the Soul of America: Rally, March & Civil Disobedience to End the Filibuster

May 23 @ 11:00 am

It’s time to #SitInToSaveAmerica!

Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin are protecting the filibuster over our people, democracy, and planet.

On May 23, Arizonans and West Virginians will come together in our states to protest and take nonviolent direct action to say “No more!”
With the recently leaked impending Supreme Court decision striking down Roe V. Wade, the urgency of removing the minority veto filibuster is greater than ever. At least 50 Senators are committed to passing legislation to protect women’s right to choose across our nation –– only the filibuster stands in the way. Now is the time for us to escalate this fight!
Join us in Tucson to let Kyrsten Sinema know: we will not allow her to continue to block legislation that could solve the existential crises that face our nation.
Join this event page, invite your friends and family, and sign up at SitInForTheSoulOfAmerica.org! This is a family-friendly, peaceful, powerful event.

From our voting rights and democracy to protecting women’s right to choose, workers rights, providing a path to citizenship, climate action, the fight for $15, LGBTQ rights, gun violence prevention, police reform, health care, and more — the filibuster is blocking the change we desperately need! It’s time to bring our movements together to fight in unity to bring down the common barrier to achieving all of our missions.

To break the Manchin-Sinema blockade on progress we believe that people across our country will need to take bold action. But they’re our Senators, so Arizonans and West Virginians are going to lead the charge and re-ignite this existential fight.

As Sinema, Manchin, and their filibuster are blocking the change we need, now we will block business as usual to demand it. In the great American tradition of Dr. King, John Lewis, Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, the sit down strikers, and other freedom struggles, we will use the tool of nonviolent direct action –– the most powerful means of political action available to everyday people every day –– to dramatize this emergency and make it impossible to ignore.

This is a statewide mobilization! People are coming to Tucson from the Phoenix valley, from Flagstaff and northern Arizona, and from border communities. We will work to coordinate and support transportation and modest housing for anyone coming from out of town. Training by experienced practitioners of nonviolent action will be required and robust legal support will be provided for those who choose to risk arrest in the sit-in part of the action. A shared commitment to Kingian Nonviolence is an important basis of unity for this action.

We stand at a crossroads in the history of our nation and the world. Like the generations of Americans who rose to meet the challenges of their time, now we must take the baton of freedom and rise to meet this test. Join us in Tucson and let’s sit in for the soul of America!
