Why you should support March for Truth

March for Truth

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

Click here to find out how to get involved with the March For Truth.

March For Truth is a grassroots, volunteer led series of events across the country organizing in order to restore faith in American government. Our goal: demand an impartial investigation into Russian interference in the US election and ties to Donald Trump, his 2016 campaign, his administration, and his associates.

We've had an incredible response so far with 80+ cities internationally.

The money we raise here will defray the cost of volunteer supplies, megaphones, port-a-potties, signage, accessibility for participants with disabilities, permits, insurance, and many other expenditures that we will encounter in the weeks ahead. 

Your donation, no matter how big or small, makes an enormous difference, and we appreciate your support.

One day left before we #MarchForTruth!

Hello #MarchForTruth supporters!

We are SO excited to march with you tomorrow, Saturday, June 3, in one of 145+ cities in 6 countries. Your help and generosity means that we will be able to pay our vendors without having to dive into personal savings or using credit cards, and I probably don't have to tell you how much that means to us!

This is our last day to fundraise before the march! It would mean so much to us if you could share our link with your followers on social media. Here is a sample tweet:

5 days left!

Thank you so much for supporting the #MarchForTruth! We appreciate every single one of you who have made what started out as a few people complaining on Twitter into a global event.

The coundtown has begun to Saturday, June 3rd- presently there are 137 locations planning a gathering, from Anchorage, Alaska to Brussels, Belgium. 

Together we'll raise our voices to demand the truth about Russian interference in our elections- an attack on our sovereignty- and whether Donald Trump and his associates were involved.

We hope to see you at a march near you on Saturday.

Thank you again,

All of us at March for Truth

March for Truth update, 5/18

The bombshell news that James Mueller has been appointed by the Department of Justice to serve as Special Counsel on the Russia investigation comes after a "cascade of damaging developments for Mr. Trump in recent days," as the New York Times reported.

Let's be clear: it's a victory that a special counsel is in place.

But the battle is far from over to get to the bottom of this investigation. 

We still need an independent commission with subpoena powers. As House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi put it, "A special prosecutor is the first step, but it cannot be the last. Director Mueller will still be in the chain of command under the Trump-appointed leadership of the Justice Department. He cannot take the place of a truly independent, outside commission that is completely free from the Trump administration's meddling." 

And Congressional investigations must continue. As Rep. John Conyers, Ranking Member of the House Committee on the Judiciary noted, "the appointment of a special counsel does not relieve Congress of its responsibility to conduct oversight of the Trump Administration." 

The gravity of this situation is profound. The sovereignty of our nation was attacked to elect a man who is a threat to the rule of law. There are criminal investigations, and investigations into matters of national security, that must be completed to restore our faith.

The culture of deceit that surrounds Donald Trump and his associates must be dealt with urgently. If this man was elected in part by colluding with a foreign power, then we must know it. We must know if our government is legitimate. For if it is not, then we must right that wrong. We must restore trust, in our government, and in one another.

Join us as we #MarchForTruth on June 3rd!

85+ cities have organized events on June 3rd to demand an end to the culture of deceit that starts in the White House:
  • An independent commission must be established and Congressional investigations should be properly resourced and pursued free of partisan interests;
  • As much information should be made available to the public as possible, and as soon as possible;
  • Congress should require Donald Trump to release his tax returns to clarify his business interests and obligations to any foreign entity;
  • If crimes were committed or if collusion is discovered, it must be prosecuted.

The March was covered in the Washington PostHuffington Post and Shareblue.

There is plenty more to do, and we need your help. Here are the three things you can do for us this week to help build the #MarchForTruth:

We need every bit of help getting the word out. Please share #MarchForTruth across all of your social media channels, in any available lists or email groups, and in any meetings or events you are attending where you encounter those interested in this topic. Send letters to the editor, write op-eds, buy billboards. (Okay, don't worry about the billboards.)

Here are images you can share on social media.

Here are a few sample statements for social media:

March for Truth Update: Wow! You are incredible.

Hello from MFT,

First off, thank you all for your generosity and interest in the March for Truth. We couldn't pull this off without your support, and we appreciate you.

We've had an explosion of interest since Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. We grew from 20 cities to 40+ cities virtually overnight with more events added every day. We've written more about this in a press release on our main site. March for Truth also received a bit of press in the Washington Post yesterday.

Please pass along our link to anyone you think might be interested in joining us on June 3, and thank you again.

March for Truth Update 2: Just topped $3k!

Hello #MarchForTruth supporters-

Since we announced earlier this week, we've had hundreds of people donate to the general #MarchForTruth fund, and managed to raise $3k. 

This is *amazing* for a completely grassroots effort that began by a few people on Twitter coming up with the crazy notion that we should have truth and transparency in government. THANK YOU!

We will need to raise more money by the middle of the month to make this happen. 

Please share this message with your friends on Twitter and Facebook. We need to spread the message far and wide that we will NOT rest until we know the truth about the Trump campaign's ties with Russia.

Use the hashtag #TrumpRussia and/or #MarchForTruth in your tweet, and we will RT you for maximum effect.

Thank you again!
