Saturday’s planned #ImpeachTrump Day of Action has expanded greatly in the past week with over 100 events now set around the nation to call for House impeachment hearings against President Trump.
Organizers said that the number of events grew from 75 last week to 133 today.
Several groups are involved including Indivisible, MoveOn, By the People, and nearly 20 others.
Some of the events will be simple protests, and others will include the reading of pro-impeachment speeches from Democrats including Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Minnesota Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
House Democratic leaders have skirted direct talk about impeachment, angering the progressive Left. The protests are aimed at giving the public a greater voice in the process, said organizers.
“Donald Trump has broken the law, violated the Constitution, and put the safety and future of the American people at risk. But by now, it is clear that Congress won’t act unless we demand it. We need to take to the streets in every neighborhood in America to defend democracy,” said Alexandra Flores-Quilty, a spokeswoman with By the People, in a statement.
Some liberal political analysts have warned against impeachment, claiming the party and its 2020 candidates would face a political backlash.
A map of events show that most will occur on the East and West coasts and in some Midwest college towns and big cities like Chicago.
