The Christian Left and Vote Common Good firmly believe in the value of faith in action. That’s why we’re headed to Miami to join a counter-protest outside of Trump’s golf resort at Doral, the next stop on the Christian Nationalist “Reawaken America” tour.
This tour is a series of rallies organized by a far right, Christian Nationalist “news” organization called Charisma News. These events feature all the most extreme right-wing media personalities: General Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, Eric Trump, the My Pillow Guy, and dozens more.
Their goal is to spread Christian Nationalist propaganda to disillusioned voters whose communities have fallen into neglect. They stoke hate and division and use it to drive evangelical voters into the arms of an increasingly radical Republican party.
We’re going to stop them.
Here's a link to an NPR article about the activities of “Reawaken America.”
Last Summer, with your support, we joined in an interfaith counter-protest at their event outside Batavia, NY.
Now they’re headed to one of Trump’s resorts in Miami, and our team is going to be on the ground again to clearly counter their message of hate.
The Christian Left and Vote Common Good are working with other groups in staging a counter-protest at this event to spread our message of unity, love, justice, and the greater good because this radicalized agenda has to be directly challenged by people of faith.
It’s going to cost about $5,000 for our action team to make this trip. Can you pitch in now to help cover the cost of our travel expenses?
We will also be livestreaming our counter-protest so you can follow along at home. But if you’re in the Miami area and want to join us, contact us at email@example.com !
As pastors, organizers, and faith leaders, we know it is crucial for faith-based voters to see people from their own faith community take a stand against the dangerous rhetoric of Christian Nationalism.
This not only has an impact on the people who attend the rally in person, but on every person of faith who will see the coverage online and in the media.
We know direct action is effective. That’s why it’s so important our team goes to Miami to counter the narrative of these dangerous radicals.
Help us get to Miami to bear witness to the true values of our faith and challenge people to abandon Christian Nationalism. If we can raise $5,000 today, the entire trip’s expenses will be covered up front.
Taking action requires financial sponsors. Please do what you can.
