Trump Resistance Roadshow, Earth2Trump, Coming to Oakland

OAKLAND, Calif.— Earth2Trump, a cross-country roadshow heading to Washington, D.C., and building a vast network of resistance to incoming President Trump, is coming to Oakland on Jan. 2, 2017. The tour is organized by the Center for Biological Diversity in coordination with 350 Bay Area, Sierra Club, Global Exchange, Food and Water Watch, Rainforest Action Network, Bay Area Labor Committee for Peace and Justice, and many more local groups.

Beginning in Oakland and Seattle on Jan. 2, a pair of Earth2Trump Roadshows will tour the country bringing speakers, musicians, outrage, fun and hope to 16 cities as it progresses toward the presidential inauguration on Jan. 20.

The shows will feature national and local speakers, musicians, and an opportunity to join a growing movement of resistance to all forms of oppression and all attacks on the environment.

What: The Earth2Trump roadshow of resistance.

When: Jan. 2, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Where: Omni Commons, 4799 Shattuck Ave., Oakland.

The Oakland event will include music performances by Namorados Da Lua and Casey Neill.

“When we all speak together with a single voice of resistance, our power grows – and so do our chances of defeating the Trump administration,” said Blake Kopcho, an organizer with the Center. “People in Oakland will have a crucial role to play in building this movement and we’re excited to get there.”

The Earth2Trump roadshow will rally and empower defenders of civil rights and the environment to resist Trump's dangerous agenda. Stopping in 16 cities on its way to Washington, D.C., it will bring the messages and support of thousands of people to protest at the presidential inauguration.
Each show will give participants a chance to:

  • Sign the national Pledge of Resistance to Trump's dangerous agenda.
  • Write a personalized #Earth2Trump message that will be carried to D.C. in a massive globe and delivered to Trump.
  • Create a huge, viral social media #Earth2Trump messaging campaign.
  • Connect with community members resisting oppression and find out how to join the million people who will protest in Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day.
