About By the People

By the People is a nonviolent, grassroots movement to impeach the Trump administration and make an America that finally works for all of us who call it home.

Through nonviolent action, we are building a movement across the country to stop this dangerous and corrupt administration. We are transforming our democracy into what it’s supposed to be: a government that’s of, by, and for all of us.

Our movement is gaining traction in the news and in Congress. After months of mounting pressure across the country, we forced the House to advance impeachment proceedings. But just because we’re finally moving forward, doesn’t mean we can slow down. Congress will only act swiftly and comprehensively if millions of us demand it. That’s why we need you.

No matter your background, who you voted for, your age, your gender, your sexual orientation, your religion, or your race; if you are a recent immigrant or if your family has been here for generations; if you live in the biggest city or the smallest town — we all have a stake in each other’s future. It’s time to stop solely looking to those in power for what they are going to do and instead build power with each other -- our neighbors, our family, and our friends. We invite you to join us in this fight. 

Our elected officials have a choice: They can protect Trump or they can protect the American people.

Trump and his administration have been wielding the executive branch to undermine our democracy, divide Americans against each other, and enrich and empower themselves. The latest incident with Ukraine is just further evidence of Trump selling out the American people in order to maintain his hold on power.

We want a government that works for all Americans, not for the personal gain of Trump and his friends — and we’re demanding our elected representatives #ImpeachNow to make it happen.

If we don’t act now to demand that Congress fulfill its duty, Trump and future presidents will be emboldened to carry out further abuses of power that trample on our rights, harm our families, and violate the Constitution.

This fight isn’t about Republicans vs. Democrats. It's about all of us, and the highest ideals of our country are at stake: democracy, equity, and freedom. 


By the People is grounded in a core set of principles that make our work stronger. They do this by connecting us with our values and offering strategic guidance informed by our study of successful movements.

Every action associated with By the People must abide by these principles.
