Progressive Democrats of America CNM Chapter – 12/7/19


Nobody Is Above the Law. That’s why we’re calling on Congress to Impeach & Remove Donald Trump.

The night before the House of Representatives takes a somber vote to impeach Trump, we’ll head to every congressional office and public square to declare that Nobody Is Above the Law as representatives finalize their positions and senators look on.

Join this historic nationwide mobilization on the eve of Trump’s impeachment vote: RSVP for an event near you or sign up to host one. Events will be visible, family-friendly, public gatherings to demonstrate to our lawmakers that their constituents are behind them to defend the Constitution-and that Trump has left them no alternative to uphold their oath of office but to support impeachment and removal.

J.D. has organized an event at Tiguex Park.  Go here
