Aug. 10, 2017 — AZ Resist is organizing a statewide action at 16 locations across the state Aug. 14.

AZ Resist is a loose coalition of “progressive” groups and individuals including elements of the Democratic Party, politicians, community groups and candidates.

“#DontTreadOnAz is a statewide protest, taking place on Monday, August 14th at all of the congressional district offices throughout Arizona. In districts with progressive representatives, we will gather to show our support for their positive leadership. In districts with hostile representatives, we will gather to show our opposition to their hateful and harmful actions” according to the AZ Resist website.

The group is attempting to focus the actions on health care, public education, human rights and environment protections. Participants are being asked to bring letters, which will be hand-delivered to the respective offices, and display signs. AZ Resist also encourages use of public transportation or carpool, and to properly deposit any trash.

We are sick and tired of our protections, freedoms and benefits being eroded by the elitist right-wing agenda that only benefits the 1%. We are tired of witnessing the sale of Arizonan’s liberties for the benefit of a few wealthy donors. Our healthcare, education, human rights, and environment are not up for debate.  It’s time to stand up and fight back against the systematic dismantling of our rights and protections,” according to the AZ Resist website.

Actions include all nine members of the Arizona Congressional delegations, including: Rep. Tom O’Halleran, district 1; Rep. Martha McSally, district 2; Rep. Raul M. Grijalva, district 3; Rep. Paul Gosar, district 4; Rep. Andy Biggs, district 5; Rep. David Schweikert, district 6; Rep. Ruben Gallego, district 7; Rep. Trent Franks, district 8; Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, district 9.
