DNC Launches Resist Summer Website, Urges Democrats to Resist Trump Policies
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has launched a website aimed at mobilizing Democrats, Liberals and Independents to resist the Trump administration’s policies during the summer.
The organization also released a companion video for the website.
According to the DNC, the Resistance Summer website will allow Americans across the country to participate in the party’s Resistance Summer program near them.
The announcement by the Democratic National Committee said the goal is to educate, organize and mobilize grassroots energy from Democrats throughout the States, Territories and Democrats Abroad.
“The mission of Resistance Summer is to educate, organize, and mobilize grassroots energy from Democrats in all 50 states, territories, and Democrats Abroad to help build our party’s base of political power and resist Trump’s attacks on hardworking families,” the DNC said.
“The American people are demanding a Democratic agenda focused on expanding opportunity, better wages, affordable health care and a secure retirement. Resistance Summer is not just about holding Trump accountable – it’s about electing Democrats who will prioritize the needs of middle class and working families.”

The program is also designed to bolster state parties by investing in local projects over the summer.
“Since Donald Trump’s inauguration, there has been an explosion of grassroots activity opposing this administration’s abuse of power and the Trump-Ryan agenda, which prioritizes tax cuts for the rich over the needs of middle-class and working families.”
“The program is a competitive matching grant program, where the DNC will help fund the important work done by state parties to achieve their organizing goals. Recognizing that a one-size-fits-all approach is ineffective, each program will be unique to each state’s strategic priorities and organizational capacity,” the DNC added.
