Following the election, the four movements incubated by the Momentum Community have been leading some of the most visible and proactive efforts to resist Trump’s agenda and project a positive alternative to his vision of America.
After the movements are incubated and launched, each runs independently with their own staff and volunteer infrastructure. We share an ongoing movement framework and a relationship of reciprocity, and are in deep personal relationships with one another. The movements share their insights and experiences with one another and other participants at trainings and organizing skillshares. Some of the top leaders of these movements are on our core team, many are Momentum trainers, and they all support building our community.
We are deeply grateful for the bold experimentation of these movements, and the ways they are taking responsibility in their communities for the transformational change we need.
Cosecha is a nonviolent movement working to win permanent protection, dignity and respect for the 11 million undocumented people in this country.
“Our campaigns aim to bring our community from a place of fear and individual fights to determination and collective resistance. We are making headlines, and organizing a week without immigrants - building toward massive civil resistance and non-cooperation to show the country it depends on us.”
IfNotNow is a movement to end the American Jewish Community's support for the Occupation, and for freedom and dignity for all.
"Today, the Jewish community is faced with a choice. Will we leave our tradition in the hands of out-of-touch leaders, or will we fight for a vibrant, liberated Jewish community that supports freedom and dignity for all Israelis and Palestinians?”
AllOfUs, a movement to challenge Wall Street Democrats to represent a truly progressive agenda, or get out of the way.
"We need a new America. Now more than ever. Not based in hatred and greed, but community and care. Our generation is the most diverse, progressive generation, and we are demanding that Democrats pledge to do everything in their power to defend our communities and our democracy from Trump’s hate."
Sunrise is a movement to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process. Sunrise is building an army of young people to make climate change an urgent priority across America, end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives on our politics, and elect leaders who stand up for the health and wellbeing of all people.
"We are ordinary young people who are scared about what the climate crisis means for the people and places we love. We are gathering in classrooms, living rooms, and worship halls across the country. Everyone has a role to play. Public opinion is already with us -- if we unite by the millions we can turn this into political power and reclaim our democracy."
