On United We Stand St. Louis:
In response to attacks on democracy, equality, human rights, and justice for all by Donald J. Trump and the conservative majority in Jefferson City, a historic movement has emerged. We come together to dismantle the barriers between us and organize our strength in numbers, educate and train our communities, and take direct action under the banner, “United We Stand: From Resistance to Opposition to Political Power.” We recognize that the divisions created by nativism, racism, state violence, Islamophobia, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, and anti-Semitism threaten to destroy our democracy and divide our communities.
