We're a grassroots community of over two million progressives who are resisting Trump’s corrupt agenda and strengthening our democracy nationwide.

standupamerica Stand Up America

Stand Up America is a political advocacy organization focused on digital mobilization to resist Trump’s corrupt agenda, advance progressive values, and strengthen our democracy.

Founded after the 2016 election, our community has quickly grown to over two million Americans, across all 50 states, who are taking action and making their voices heard daily. Stand Up America has driven over 700,000 calls to Congress and mobilized more than 50,000 activists to demand our representatives oppose Trump’s corrupt agenda. In the 2018 midterms, we recruited thousands of volunteers for progressive House races across the country, registered over 10,000 voters, and sent more than 600,000 peer- to-peer text messages to help get out the vote.

Now we’re focused on holding Trump accountable for his corruption and crimes, and we’re fighting for bold legislative reforms that will strengthen our democracy at the state and national level by increasing voter participation and reducing the influence of money in our elections.
