We are asking every Representative and Senator in the incoming Congress to sign this declaration or share this message in their own words:
“I unequivocally reject white nationalism and recognize it is a threat to individuals, communities, and American democracy itself.”
White nationalism is a dangerous political ideology that seeks to build a country for white people only — and to rid our country of everyone else. More and more, this toxic worldview has moved from the margins of society to the mainstream.
We’ve seen the impacts of the white nationalist movement and we demand Congress take action. We’ve seen violence and murder across the country, in Charlottesville, Portland, Kansas City, Louisville, and Pittsburgh. We’ve seen the scapegoating of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers. We’ve seen antisemitic conspiracy theories and racist ideas spread in our politics.
We will not be divided. We will build a country where all of us belong — where every single person can live, love, and thrive.
Find your Representative and Senators below. Click on the Twitter or Facebook icons next to their name to ask them to #RejectWhiteNationalism.
We need to know where every Representative and Senator in the 116th Congress stands before they’re sworn in on January 3. Send them a message on Twitter or Facebook to make sure they see our demand to reject white nationalism. (Check back soon: after Thanksgiving we’ll update this directory to show who has responded. Elected officials can sign on or share their statement here.)
