Fighting With Federalism!
The Constitution contemplated that our country might have to deal with a President intent on violating people’s rights. Unfortunately, that time may have arrived. President Trump made violating multiple Constitutional protections a centerpiece of his administration. This unprecedented situation requires action.
The Committees of Correspondence is responding by forming the Safe Haven Project to urge states and cities to use our federal system of government to create geographic safe havens across the country where President Trump's unconstitutional actions will have limited or no effect. We will coordinate efforts to protect our rights, from state legislatures to the courts to the ballot box.
