Dump Trump

DUMP TRUMP, DEFEAT RACISM AND MISOGYNY, BUILD THE LEFT was an open letter to the left from 47 grassroots organizers. October 17, 2016.

A lot of us see something really clearly, but few of us—radical and revolutionary organizers—are willing to say it out loud.
So we’re going to say it. Defeating Trump in the presidential election is a top priority for the left. And at a minimum, that means mobilizing voters for Hillary Clinton in swing states even if you vote for another candidate in a safe state. We’ve got to beat Trump and Trumpism while building movements that will fight, resist and disrupt a Clinton administration that will be militaristic and pro-corporate...
As we mentioned at the beginning, defeating Trump is not enough. We need movements strong enough to fight a Clinton administration on several fronts—whether Israel/Palestine, free trade agreements, climate change, a $15 minimum wage, or the prison-industrial complex. And neutralizing the appeal of the far right means we need to both strengthen our movements for racial justice and win over white workers to a progressive class politics as an alternative to Trump’s racist economic nationalism. Finally, we need to build a left that can help anchor a visionary alternative to corporate Democrats. It won’t be easy, but we’ve come this far. Let’s defend what we’ve got in this election, and keep our eye on collective liberation.

Hanging out with Youth United for Change at a great event with the members and supporters last night. Over 25 years old and stronger than ever. Proud to have been a part of it all these years and now stepping off the board but still down to support the vision. Pictured here with Cecilia Rivera, office manager, Saxon Nelson, Board President, and Rapheal Randall, Executive Director.



In October , 2017 Hannah Jones (Organizer, rural Washington) & Rapheal Randall (Organizer, Philadelphia) were LeftRoots members.

We both joined LeftRoots because we knew that our local movement work was important but not enough, and because we believe the Left needs a coherent national strategy if it is serious about building the power to transform and govern society. But we didn’t imagine that we would actually be developing ourselves as revolutionary strategists! Who imagines THAT?![2]

3 DAYS LEFT. Rapheal Randall, youth organizer:


"I am looking forward to putting Philadelphia on a more progressive track by voting for the #VoteJustice slate. I understand that by voting for these individuals, we can help establish better organizing conditions for workers who are severely underpaid, youth who feel alienated and marginalized within their own schools...
