Welcome to The Swamp!
Swamp Revolt was born the day after the 2016 election. When Donald Trump promised to “drain the swamp” during his campaign, he meant that he and Congressional Republicans would turn back American progress. They would “make America great again” by turning back the clock on equality, justice, and efforts to protect our natural environment.
The “swamp” has also been derisive shorthand for the place and people who work and live in the District of Columbia. It was and is a mean-spirited attempt to demean the work, values and lives of federal workers, community organizations, and civil servants of every stripe.
The truth is that Donald Trump’s “swamp” is filled with people in D.C. and beyond who are committed to progressive ideals to end inequality, fight injustice, and protect our planet. The Swamp needs to fight for these ideals through peaceful revolt in ways great and small.
At Swamp Revolt, join us in doing one thing every day (or almost every day) that: denounces politics of division, encourages dialogue, stymies dangerous political agendas, and lifts our spirit so we can continue the fight.
Welcome to Swamp Revolt. Come on in, the water is fine.
